Let me state again, you did *NOT* change your /home to /home2
You used 'cp -a' rather than rsync or cpio and only the top level files
were moved. You did NOT set a 'recursive' option on the copy and you
did not copy the hidden "dot" files and directories such as ".kde4" and
".cache".

For the record, "cp -a" is recursive, and should get everything, preserving
all file mode flags.
