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,
