Win98 Profiles

I did the following workaround:

in ipc.c there are two calls that look like this:

pstrcpy(p2, lp_logon_home());

I changed them back to what they were in 2.0.5a

pstrcpy(p2, lp_logon_path());

This restored 2.0.5a's recognition of the logon path= parameter. However...

Giulio Orsero made me aware that this will reenstate the 2.0.5a bug where
net use h: /home would map h: to the profile path instead of the home
directory. That's why this is a workaround. Hope this helps.
