I take you have carried out a 'classicupgrade' from an NT4-style PDC to
an AD DC. How is your Bind server set up ? is it using flat files ? If
so I would suggest you take the hint and run bind on the DC using dlz
as a subdomain of your original dns domain.

I think the first may be an effect of your bind setup at the moment.
The second, the [homes] share, is because [homes] doesn't work on a DC,
you will need to use something like [home] and add a 'path' line, you
can also remove the 'browseable' line, this is because there is no
browsing with a Samba AD DC.
You are also going to have several other problems, this is because you
seem to be using the deprecated 'ntvfs' database
