Home dir on a share

Using the HEAD branch.
While calling NetUserGetInfo my program receives a USER_INFO_3
structure. It seems that the entry usri3_home_dir returned by
the SAMBA PDC is in error for some cases.
If the Home directory of a user is on a local disk, this entry should
be (and is) a path such as: "c:\users\xxx".
If the Home directory is on a share, this entry shoud be in UNC
But the SAMBA server returns
"\\SERVER\[what is in smb.conf for the home]".
I have defined in smb.conf the "home" share as %H/NT.
The Unix home directory of user xxx is /home/xxx (which is not a share).
His Windows home (mounted as z:\) is on /home/xxx/NT.
But the entry that SAMBA returns points to /home/xxx/NT/NT !
I have a program that shows this if someone is interested
but there is no need for it to show the problem: HOMEPATH is
in the environment and show the same feature.
