Gentoo + AD + pam_mount + ssh = single password?

Can I get a gentoo machine to authenticate/mount home directories from a windows 2003 server with a single password?

In the computer lab I help administrate, we have a headless linux project box, running gentoo, that uses Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) to authenticate against the lab's 2003 Active Directory server. We have PAM set up so that it authenticates properly, and can even mount the user's directory on the server on their home directory(using pam_mount).
The problem: when logging in via ssh, it currently requires two passwords (one for ssh login, one for home directory mounting). This is not a problem on the linux workstation in the lab (using gdm and roughly the same pam configs for logins).
So my question: how do I configure this project box to use only one password for login/directory mounting?
