if you use a "logon  path" outside of the home share then "net use h:
/home" will incorrectly map to the profile share instead of the home

"net use h: /home" works perfectly but "logon path" is ignored if you
use a path outside of the home share.

It's just 2 lines of code in ipc.c, that changed between 2.0.5 and
2.0.6, that cause this.

It's said that samba-2.0.7 will fix both issues.
