Yep, that is what smbstatus shows me. Sometimes the shares are disconnected during logout, sometimes not.

As I mentioned, all the (pseudo)-[homes] shares in the browselist are 
showing the content of the "real" homes share of the logged-in user. So 
the issue is solely about user confusion...

Compare the remarks to "logon path" in man

I have done that.
