Yes - otherwise we don't execute that code.  If people don't have PAM
setup, it would fail :-(

This connects the user to a share named after the login ID, but double-clicking that share shows all of the folders in the /home/%D path rather than just the contents of the user's folder.  Which makes sense, but why doesn't /home/%D/%U or a blank entry work?

A blank entry should work - in what way does it 'not work'?  Try
2.2.6rc2 - a stat() check has been removed that might have caused the
problem.  Samba 3.0 has even more advanced logic here.
