What problems are you seeing with 2.2.2?

One thing we've noticed with W2k and 2.2.2 is that every time a user logs 
on with Windows 2000, it creates a new profile (eg, "user"  "user.1"  
"user.2"  "user.3"  etc.).  We haven't really dealt with Windows 2000 
before now, so we're not sure if it is a Windows 2000 issue or a Samba 

NT4 domain logins work just fine, though.
