[Samba] samba, winbind and pam

I use samba/winbind and pam to authenticate to our Active Directory.
I ask pam to create the user home directory on linux when the user does a login.
it works just fine but the problem that I'm having is that in the home directory I end up having tons of user homes but they've never logged into this linux system.
have you experienced this, any solutions, ideas?
thank you.
