When a user connects, /etc/nsswitch.conf is consulted, this will have
lines for passwd & group, yours will (I presume) look something like this:
passwd: compat winbind
group: compat winbind
What this means is, the the first place to look for a user is
/etc/passwd and if the user exists there, then that info is used, what I
think is happening is that your windows 7 user does not exist there, or
more likely is there, but with a different ID number.
I will repeat, you cannot have users both in /etc/passwd and AD, if you
want to have users use different home directory paths, look into using
