[Samba] Home directories not mounting under 3.0.2a

I've compiled samba 3.0.2a on Solaris 8 and have issues with home
We previously had two servers each Solaris 8 running 2.2.8a, one as a
pdc, the other as a bdc.
Our users have their home directories split across the two servers, and
the home directory was under 2.2.8a mounted by way of the NIS automap
feature. They could log on to a WinXP machine (which was a member of
the samba domain), and they would have their h: home mapped on log in
through "net use h: /home".
But since the upgrade to 3.0.2a, WinXP will not map the home drive.
I compiled 3.0.2a with --with-automount, and a look at the %N variables
brings up the correct host from the NIS auto.home map. However, when
trying to use "net use h: /home" on WinXP to mount the home directory
off Samba, WinXP says
"The user's home directory could not be determined."
The home share, however, does show up in the browse list of the server
under Network Places and can be accessed.
On the server, executing "pdbedit -u username -v" gives no value for
home directory, but home drive appears as "h:". Trying to change this with
pdbedit -u username -r -h \\\\server\homesharename
does nothing (in fact, no option wants to change by pdbedit).
Server logs say nothing at all.
