Well, in 2.2.5, I can use "obey pam restrictions = yes" with winbind to 
create home directories via pam_mkhomedir. Are you saying

1)This won't work in 3.0
2)Samba does this (creating the homedir) already
3)"obey pam restrictions = yes" is effectively set (thus my:

session     required      /lib/security/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ 

in /etc/pam.d/samba will work anyway)?
