[Samba] Still can't get my roaming profile to work

I've been browsing the archive and googling for something like 3 days now and 
still haven't found where the problem is.

Here the situation:
Samba 2.2.8a acting as a PDC
Some Win2kSP3 clients

The problem:

When a user logon for the first time, a cache profile is created locally, 
when he logoff, that profile is saved on the PDC. It's working as expected. 
The problem arise when the user logon after, it simply won't use the profile 
on the server. No complaint, no error, nothing, it simply doesn't use it. 
I've tried deleting the local cached profile, when the user logon again, it 
just create a fresh new profile, leaving everything intact on the PDC.

Also, it seems that my win2k doesn't keep his roaming (but unused) profile 
and his local cached profile synched. Example: if i put a file on my desktop 
then logoff, the files is now on the PDC, i logon again, delete the file and 
logoff, the file is still on the PDC. I've tried this with 10 differents 
files deleting them one at a time just to find out that they where still all 
on the PDC.

I've lost count of how many things i've tried... if anyone could give me some 
hints i would _REALLY_ appreciate, thx alot
