I haven't messed around with partitioning since the early days of
Slackware, and that was with a great deal of trepidation?
You just multiplied my curiosity about what exactly was responsible for your current partitioning
scheme, not to mention what will be used for your planned reinstallation.
The installer for Debian Stretch has an new option thzt thought I'd try.: separate /home, /var and/temp partitions.

Over the last 50+ years as Research Scientist I have tried to follow the policy that it's all right to make mistakes.. As long as you try not to make the same mistake in the same contiguous four hours - that is if you make a mistake in the morning, wait until that afternoon to repeat it. But even more important from the mistake and try not to repeat it. I think that making mistakes is an integral part of the scientific method.

Of course, there is a corollary - you can't teach an old scientist new science.

Having babbled for the last two paragraphs, I'll close buy saying that I will revert to the entire installation on the same partition.
