Getting kicked out whilst logging in via winbind

Ive now found that it cannot find or create the users home directory.

There are no indications in /var/log/messages that it cannot create it, but 
when issue flashes up very quickly (after login) it says that cannot 
find/create (Iam not 100% sure, as it flashes up quick) the users home dir.

Heres the winbind section of my smb.conf:


# Windind configuration
    winbind separator = +
    winbind cache time = 10
    template shell = /bin/bash
    #template shell = /bin/false
    template homedir = /home/%D/%U
    winbind uid = 10000-20000
    winbind gid = 10000-20000
