What about specifiy a share
comment = Home directory
max connections = 1
This is not fail safe but normally logging in means certain access to
users and if that access is denied they won't bother. You couldn't
specify a max simultaneous connections using the [homes] share since
this would affect all users rather than just a specific one.
Hope this helps,
