There's a difference whether you logged in as root or su-ed to root. In
the latter case /home is still in use by the user you su-ed from.

Even though it is not strictly necessary to init 1 you must make sure
not a single user that uses /home for their home directory is logged in
and no system user accesses files there (f.e. apache configured with
home dirs) when attempting to move /home.
