I've read following:

Whenn the client logoff, it copies all of his profile-data to the server 
as prf*.tmp -files. After succesfull copy of one file, it will be 
renamed to a properly filename. The old original file on the server will 
by overwrite.

But what happen, when there is still a file on the server, which is just 
deleted on the client? That's the problem.

Is this property also verified under Windows-Server?
