Are you saying that a "first time user" changes class files and put
them into TEXMFHOME????? Are you joking or is that serious?

The OP asked about a changed .cls file ...

I somehow feel like this thread is loosing more and more the contact 
to reality.

At least *I* was using LaTeX for a long long time until I had the need
to change a .cls file, or creating my own sty files outside the 
current project ...

Well, maybe I am so stupid and retarded and others are doing that right
after the 
	\documentclass{article}\begin{document}Hello World\end{document}
If this is the case, please simply feel pity for such a retarded one,
and sorry for disturbing the great minds.

Best wishes
