I´ve tried it myself.

-created a user "template"
-logged in to a workstation, modified the background color to red, logged
-logged in as administrator
-copied and changed perms of the profile with "System" to user test. On
the first try, it only created the directory "test", on the second run it
copied the content
-logged in as "test", background red, changed background to blue, logout,
login, background blue
-checked permissions on the profile. ntuser.dat, ntuser.dat.LOG and
ntuser.ini have "test" as owner, the other files/directories in the
profile dir have "administrator" as owner but "test" has full access in
the ACLs.

That leads to the question: Do you use ACLs? ;-)
