Am I? With SSSD or Winbind or pam_ldap all windows users are also linux 
users, provided they have unix attributes.

I was expecting that when a user logs in, no matter from windows or ssh, 
its homedir were created according to 'pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ 
umask=0027', which does happen only on ssh, not when coming from windows.
