This is normal behavor,
>> instead it creates john.smith.MIDEARTH. 

if on the pc local , john.smith exists, 
it always create a new folder john.smith.SERVERNAME
if you delete the local loginname and create te same again
you wil get a john.smith.PCNAME

mayby your domain name is MIDEARTH .. And not MARS.
