Samba 3.2.4 on Vista SP1

C:\Users\jj>net use g: /home
Drive g: is now connected to \\PDC\jj. Your home directory is g:\.

If it´s a samba issue (which I doubt) it have to be between 3.2.4 and 3.2.8

What's the result of "set home" on your windows machines?

C:\Users\jj>set home

I suppose the command: net use drive /home
uses the value of HOMESHARE
