Indeed, you are right. Wrong place to have user data. I didn't focus on 
where it ends up on the emulator.
It seems that this is the place where shared files (from the devel 
machine: emulator/1/ssh) end up.
I guess I have to copy the files via the deployment.
I'll try to figure out the documentation on that ;-(
