Odd preexec/root preexec behavior

Running Samba 2.2.2, having troubles with preexec when it involves the
Log on to the samba server as kris, user "users".
%U expands to kris, %G expands to users.
path = /data/profile/%U
preexec = /bin/mkdir -m 700 /data/profile/%U
writable = yes
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
This fails to work, Samba reports that it could not open
/data/profile/kris. Replacing preexec with "root preexec = /bin/mkdir -m
700 /data/profile/%U; chown %U:%G /data/profile/%U" fixes the problem,
but it does not explain what the problem with preexec is. If I remove %U
from the path parameter, preexec works, the directory does shows up, but
I don't it set-up this way of course.
I found a bug report about preexec not working, but supposedly it has
been fixed in 2.2.1.
