I'm not following you.

How does the above fact (which I agree with completely) negate my
description of the order of logon script execution and profile loading?

1. logon script is executed as specified by remote server
2. user profile is loaded fromlocation specified by ProfileImagePath

I know I do need to take a vacation, but I can't see errors in my thinking
on the topic.  I'm applying the concepts to my current project - so if I
am missing something I'd sure love to know.
