So is there any solution to use smb shares (on Samba AND Windows Servers) as
home directories for linux users with all their consequences? I mean
automatically mount them at boot time, use pam_mkhomedir with them, single
signon during the logon process, etc.

That's what I was expecting from the release of Samba 3.0, centralized home
directories for Windows and Linux users in heterogeneous networks resulting in
dramatically reduced administration efforts and the end of not unnecessary
redundant information... Kerberos is the key to that scenario.
