IIRC, the example configs of the documentation have the [profiles] share
pointing to something with %U as the users's home directory in it.
For me, this works without troubles and I think the Samba Team wouldn't 
write flaky things in the docs.
I mean to remember from previous threads on this issue, that the problem
occurrs when you specify the profiles directory to be a subdirectory of
the [homes] share. 
Am I right on that?
