It would be enough simple preexec 'cos profiles are stored in users'
home directory. I know this is wrong but what is alternative?

  No. I know the difficulties. And I have mentioned two problems
because they was absent in previous versions: `profile` had been created 
as a directory in 1.9.19* version of samba, and password changing from

worked until I updated samba sources.
