So don't we.

I think it's probably time to apply one of the patches used in Ubuntu:

 # create dirs. with group=rw permissions, set next parameter to 0775.
    directory mask = 0700

+# Restrict access to home directories
+# to the one of the authenticated user
+# This might need tweaking when using external authentication schemes
+   valid users = %S
 # Un-comment the following and create the netlogon directory for Domain Logons
 # (you need to configure Samba to act as a domain controller too.)

With this, at least the default setup will not expose such valid
system users home directories to others.
