I'm running into the same issue. I've tried creating a new user using the GUI menu and also via adduser with default parameters ("sudo adduser <new user>"). It looks like the new user's home folder is being be filled from /etc/skel/. Does this mean my /etc/skel is missing some default config info?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

You could go and take a look at what is in /etc/skel which is indeed where most of the new user configuration comes from. Just like looking at your configuration files you will need to hit Ctrl+h so you can see the /.hidden files that are the actual config files.
Have you tried to configure the new user desktop? Most panels for instance are configurable.
I would be happy to configure as system that had no panel on the bottom. I have to move the thing to the top. You have not said what you want.
Some config files may also be in /root. If so they are hidden too and would only apply to things that need root permissions.
If you want a desktop like your own use the ~/.hidden files for it. Transplant them to /home/<new user> and make sure you set the ownership to the new user.
You will not want to use your web browser and email client config files for the new user.
