[Samba] Mangled home directory with AD

Hi all,

We have a Linux member server attached to a w3k domain, called
DISCOVERY.  The AD user policy has U: drives mapped to a home directory
but they have mangled the path, for example:
\\discovery\users\8\7\534236187  this translates
to /home/DISCOVERY/users/8/7/534236187 on the Linux machine.

Setting "winbind nss info = sfu" allows the U: drive to be mapped
correctly from XP but when a Linux workstation is joined to the domain
the users home directory is /home/DISCOVERY/534236187

wbinfo -i 534236187 shows:

Is there anyway for the Linux machine to get the home directory location
from AD so we can log users in correctly?

Any help appreciated.
