We are using Samba 3 in SuSE-linux 8.2 with ldap.
After upgrading from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 we got following problem:

When users log-in homes-share is not allways reachable, so automatic
homedrive-mapping and roaming profiles doesn't work.  This doesn't happen
everytime, but quite often.
And after login users can map their homedrives manually.

Users have following attributes in LDAP directory:

sambaHomePath: \\server\homes
sambaProfilePath: \\server\homes\profile

When I change users attributes to

sambaHomePath: \\server\username
sambaProfilePath: \\server\username\profile

The problem disappears.

So it must be the homes-share problem. All the workstations have win2000sp4.
