Roaming Profiles & briefcase on desktop...

I've recently begin using Samba 2.1 Alpha as a PDC.  When I log off the
domain from a laptop, my desktop (including the "My Briefcase") is
replicated to the server (which is correct).  When I log back on and
copy the profile from the server, the briefcase file becomes a folder
(not a briefcase).  According the the Microsoft kb, you "can't copy a
briefcase," yet when NT is the server the briefcase properties are
preserved.  Does anyone have a fix for this, or perhaps some further
