a HOME$ share doesn't exist in a 'security = share' context and I would
bet that is discussed in the samba documentation and in the man pages of
smb.conf - if you think about it...'security = share' is nothing more
than a share level access which is Windows networking at it's absolute
minimum so if you wished to share your 'home' directory, you would have
to explicitly call it a share within smb.conf as it will never work in a
[homes] type designation.
