I think that has you are using realm to join the domain, there is a good 
chance that you are also using sssd and it could have been that giving 
you the wrong homedir template. Samba does not produce either realmd or 
sssd, so if you are using sssd and you hit this problem again, I would 
suggest contacting the sssd-users mailing list.
