Cannot delete folders from profiles

Hello All,

I have SAMBA 3.0.7 compiled from source running as a PDC on SuSE 9.1, using
LDAP as a UNIX and SAMBA backend.  When a user logs out, their profile
updates fine with no errors, however, folders they deleted from their
profile remain in their profile on the server.  Any deleted files are
removed.  The users have rights to their profiles, and if they map a dive
to the profile share, they can delete folders from their profile just fine.

Stranger still, if the password backend is changed back to the smbpasswd
file, this problem no longer occurs.  Users can delete folders from their
profile without an issue.

I am at a loss.  I have included my smb.conf (filtered through testparm -s
with the sensitive info removed).  I have a level 10 log file available, but
it is too large to post to the newsgroup.  The level 1 log file has nothing
of significance in it and searching through the level 10 doesn;t yield
anything obvious.

Thanks for your help
