What happens in the directories?

For example when someone logs out are the modify times of the user
directories being changed?

Do these directories show up as being owned by the user?

What are the privledges on the parent directory? \\Plug\ in this case.

Currently I have the following set:

This works however I have the parent directory /opt/samba-2.0/profile
chmod'ed to 1777.

Hope this helps.
