I see.
from the usability standpoint, ispconfig should fail the action if the directory/user does not exist instead of succeeding with the default value.

Create a shell user in ispconfig interface.
I deleted my test host, created it again, and now I managed to create an shell user and login with it.
one thing is bothering me:

when I create a shell user, I am associating it with a site and not with a client.
this means that for a client with multiple sites, I will have to create a user for each site. this is cumbersome.
is it possible to create a shell user for a client, which will have access to all the client sites?

About suphp:
I got it to work, but I also had to apply the patch from here:

any idea what suphp is not patched with this by default?
looks like suphp is almost but not quite working, and it's a pity that users have to go through all those fire hoops to get it to work.
unless there is a good reason, the suphp debian package should be configured in a way that allows the use case for ispconfig by default.

thanks for all your help.
