I am facing the same issue. On Samba 3.x a [homes] share (plural) would 
create a 'username' share for the user (\\server\username), but it no 
longer woks on Samba 4.1.4 (using Sernet's packages). When a user 
browser the server it sees an inaccessible share called - ta-da! - 
'homes' and not its username.

I am planning an upgrade of an old 3.x server using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and 
Samba 4.14 Sernet's packages. Have already tested 4.0 using some ppa 
packages and self-compiled binaries with the same result.

With this 2-line [homes] section:
read only = no

I get this log when browsing the server:

[2014/01/15 15:55:09.588727,  2] 
   socket_check_access: Allowed connection to 'homes' from (
[2014/01/15 15:55:09.589032,  0] 
   pvfs_connect: '' is not a directory, when connecting to [HOMES]

Using a path definition makes no difference. Should I fill a bug on 
Samba or on my brain? :)

Thanks in advance, best regards.
