Profiles and Samba and logon path etc

Well, I have now traced a Win95 login to an NT PDC, and I see similar
results, except that NT uses UNICODE.

That is, Win95 does a NetUserGetInfo to retrieve info, and it dumps the
profile in the home directory, despite my having set the profile path to
\\Server\user\profile ... in User Manager for Domains.

Thus, I think it is going to be hard for Samba to support arbitrary profile
paths via the logon path parameter ...
