[Samba] User folder automatic creation - should use skel, but no

I am testing Samba 4.1.4 Sernet packages on Ubuntu 12.04 to replace our 
old Samba 3.x server. I edited pam common-session file and added 
required    pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0027' just before 
pam_unix.so and pam_sss.so. If I shell-login on the server it create its 
homedir as expected using /etc/skel with the correct umask. But when I 
login on Windows it creates its homedir and profile folder without 
copying /etc/skel nor honoring umask.

I assume Samba is creating the user's folder /before/ pam, and thus not 
using skel, is this correct? What's wrong and how can I fix this?

Best regards.
