[Samba] Shared [home] shows up as printer

I just installed Fedora 19 and I'm trying to get everything back up and running.
I have managed to get samba up and running through some brute force measures of disabling(for now) the firewalld.

That being said, my shares for a data folder are working fine, but when I try to pull up my home directory for my user, my client says that the link is to a printer.  I have the same results with Windows 7 and smbclient on Linux.

The home partition was working fine on Fedora 18 – I preserved my /home when I did the recent install.  Is there something with SELinux that tells samba about the type of file it is looking at?  The homes directory config is the default from the smb.conf.
