Running Samba 2.2.0 as a PDC with a W2K client, I encountered an error
message when logging out that indicated improper permissions to save
part of the roaming profile.  Most profile information was saved,
however.  A previous message to this list regarding an alpha version of
Samba 2.2.0 indicated that there had been a problem with Samba creating
directories with inproper permission bits set when saving profiles.  I
did a 'chmod 700' on all the directories in the profile tree, which
fixed the problem.

Has this problem been fixed in CVS?
