This is just a windows NT server standard. I'm not sure where I found this out, when you have been using Samba for aslong as I hvae you forget where you found things out. It might have been though a white paper from microsoft, however it was probably though this mailing list (or samba-ntdom) or common knowledge.
Forgive me if this sounds rude, but if you're writing doc's for this shouldn't you be aware of features like this??
Its on page 13 of this M$ white paper, I got this a few years ago from M$ website. Hope it helps.
If you need a hand with updating the docs give me a shout, I dont mind helping.

	Can you point me at Microsoft documentation for the above? I am
	documenting Profile handling for Samba-3.0.0 now and would appreciate
	knwoing your sources of information. I am not aware of a feature like
	this, except on the workstation itself.
