[Openstack] [horizon] Weird behaviour of 'user_home' and 'default_dashboard" paramenters in HORIZON_CONFIG

You have correctly analyzed the current behavior. And it is confusing. In our implementation,
we have implemented a user_home method that uses the "default_dashboard" to give the user
a default dashboard.
Now the question is of course, should that be the default behavior for Horizon. I would argue yes.
The default behavior will need to change, if the upcoming Information Architecture proposals
yield changes as I expect them to. But there's no reason we couldn't fix this behavior now.

> With all these things set I expect Horizon to show me Murano dashboard when I login to it, but instead it shows me the 'Admin' dashboard as usual. I've a bit of debugging and it seems that get_user_home from > /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/views.py is called (Horizon installed on Ubuntu).
