Hi Federico,

many thanks to you. This patch helped me too. Do you know the intention of
the original changes by the samba team in ipc.c. I don't think, it is a good
idea to store all profiles in an separate directory and the user registry in
the home path.

Thanks again

Never trust a operating system you have no sources for
Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
