Yes, it just sends a query to the server and the server may just return an
empty or malformatted string.

The question is then rather why it would return a positive number if there was
ho home dir so no data was copied?

It makes me suspect this was a very old libssh2 version? (This could be the
fault fixed in commit f9b1b950 in libssh2, part of the 1.2.8 release.)
