Well, I can understand that System account use AD machine account to do 
things so a uid for a machine account is needed but I don't think the pc 
account need an home, didn't it? If you use mkhomedir in pam_winbind 
module, home folders are created even using idmap AD backend or it's a 
problem only of idmap rid backend?
