[Samba] After migrating from Samba 2 to Samba 3 - home share names

We have several sun solaris servers which are now serve Samba 3 services.
For 2 weeks we migrate all servers from Samba 2 to Samba 3.
After the upgrade to Samba 3 all shares generated by [home]-section in
smb.conf have case sensitive names.
Besides root user john exists on the server and has a home folder.
If user john want to access his share with a Windows client he use the path:
This works great.
But if he want to access his share using the path:
he can't access the share.
Samba 2 doesn't differ between the two paths.
Other shares on the server (no [home] share) for example [smb_test] can be
accessed by typing:
My [home]-section on the server:
comment = UNIX Home Directory for %S
valid users = %S
writeable = yes
browseable = no
In my opinion there aren't any special configuration in this section and of
course no change since migration from samba 2 to samba 3.
Are there any solution for this problem? Or is it a samba 3 security feature
Thanks for help!
