Hello all

Firstly let me point out I cannot substantiate all of the details yet (I am 
working on it so i hope you can help) but after upgrading to samba 3 cvs 
3/2/2002 i am getting very similar conditions that led me to delete all files 
in a users directory just by logging on only after applying the domain user 
fix patch.

First thing I notice when upgrading to v3 is all users home directory cryptic 

secondly i am receiving something about cannot create profile directory 
because \\pdc\test       name resolve order = wins.pds - which was exactly 
what i was receiving in 2.2.3 patch applied just before i deleted all the 

Maybe it is something that i am doing wrong  I am honestly not sure anymore 
but all I can say for now is everything was fine in 2.2.3 before I applied 
the Domain user fix?

just a quick output from smbstatus -S

Hope you can make something of that.
