Dazu meine Meinung:


I've had a similar problem which was caused by unsynchronized
time between the PDC and the client. It seems that Windows
performs some time-checks to find out if the local profile is more
recent than the one on the PDC and writes only these parts of
the profile data back to the server. xntpd was my solution.
