[Samba] Why is an extra 'home' dir showing up?

[Homes] is a bit of a special section.

set browseable=no

Also, remove the path, instead, use the unix passwd file to set the home
directory of your users. (which usually defaults to /home/(userid)/

They hang the man and flog the woman
That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

My question is, how come daevid (on XP) sees the following directories:

Shouldn't there just be the home dir only? Why does "\\linux\dae51d"
show up (I assume it's b/c that's who I am logged in as on XP which maps
to linux)? However, the fact that it does show up, shouldn't it be the
actual HOME directory of the linux user account dae51d (as in
/home/dae51d/)? Instead, it is exactly the same as the "/home" directory
when I click on it.

   comment = Home Directories
   path = /home
   browseable = yes
   writable = yes
   read only = no
   valid users = dae51d
   guest ok = no
   public = no
   security = user

# Unix_name = SMB_name1 SMB_name2 ...
# nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
root = administrator admin Administrator
dae51d = daevid

# SMB password file.
