[Samba] How to handle domain logons if users using same accountname
are logged on the same time?

I'm working at a small office.
I'm running Samba 2.x for about a year without any problem, it's working
absolutely GREAT and the community kicks ass :)
We don't have too many machines so about 6 Users use about 3 PCs to do
I just setup samba latest 23c-1 as a DC because we got some more
machines, and everything's fine. Except when the same account is used on
multiple machines the same time, there are problems of course.
It simply doesn't make sense to me to create different accounts if users
who are using these machines change frequently and they all do the same
tasks.. I even couldn't control whether they login as acc1 or acc2 on
machine1 or 2.
Let's say account xyz is logged in on two machines the same time.
If a user saves a file on the desktop on machine 1, and the user on
machine 2 logges off after user on machine 1 logges off it happenes that
the changes done to a location like "desktop" are not synchronised
properly on the server share..
How should I handle this?
Deny all access to "Desktop"?
Also it would be a problem if an application is installed on a machine
using the same account which is currently used on another machine.
Would I need to make sure each account is used only one time at once?
Sorry, these are total newbie questions.. I used the official samba
howto "practice" tuts, but these questions aren't covered it seems..
I really don't know how I should/could handle this.
Could someone plz point me to the right direction?
Would be very appreciated and very very nice.
