Issues when putting HOME-directory on a NTFS-partition

http://askubuntu.com – I set the home directoy for one of my users to be on an NTFS partiton so that it is accessible from Windows. I'm the only one who uses the computer so I set fuse to allow 777 permissions to that partition. I deleted /home/me and created a symlink in it's place that points to the NTFS partition (which is mounted at /Shared/home). Chrome doesn't play well with that configuration because it creates various caches under your home directory and NTFS performance couldn't keep up with it. I fiddled with a few options to chrome (--user-data-dir --disk-cache-dir) but I couldn't get 100% of chrome's op (HowTos)
