Some funny profiles problems with Win95 and Samba 2.0.6

I have noticed some funnies with Samba 2.0.6 and Win95 and profiles ...

I have logon path = \\$L\profiles

and I have directories already created for each user in the profiles
directory on the server ... with the correct permissions ...

However, profiles are not going in the directory above.  I have a trace of
a log on and log off, and lots of stuff is getting written to USER.DAT on
the home share, but nothing to the profiles share ...

Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

Boy, Win9x does some crazy things in loggin on and off.
