Are you really sure of this? I don't have time to check it right now,
but the way I remember it is that new users get a local profile, no
matter whether Windows or Samba is used as the PDC. At least, that's
the way it worked when I did a fresh install of Windows, added a user
account, and logged onto the domain for the first time.
Is it possible that what you are experiencing there is attributable
to "funky Windows behavior", rather than whether Samba or Windows
is used as the PDC?
