You can share it, you just cannot use individual paths to the users home 
directories, it has to be whatever the default is or what you set the 
template to. This is one of the reasons it is not recommended to use the 
AD DC as a fileserver. I think that the problem lies in the samba 
daemon, as the 'new' winbindd daemon is the same as the winbindd daemon 
that works fully on a member server.
