The -p option overwrites any directories returned by Windows. mkpasswd
has no intelligence built in. It just appends the user name to the
path given by -p, nothing else. If you leave out the -p option you'll
get the home directory return by the Windows function NetUserEnum. If
there hasn't been stored any homedir in the SAM, you get /home/username.
If the NetUserEnum function doesn't return the correct path, there's
no way to get what you want which I'm aware of. I don't know how NT
generates different paths for the same user name in different Domains.
If you need a more complex layout, either manipulate the resulting passwd
file by hand or consider to write a patch to mkpasswd. You know,
