What do you mean? Is it Windows-version specific problem (i.e. NT4 and 
win2k with no service packs only), Samba-version problem (Samba < 
3.0.5), or it just works like that and noone know why? :)

As far as I understand "postexec", it will execute each time after user 
disconnets from a given share:

   path = /home/samba/profiles
   root postexec = /home/samba/scripts/logout/%u.sh

So joe.sh should execute after Joe logs out.

Considering what you said (not all logouts will send the instructions 
triggering the script) - what may be a cause for such a misbehaviuor?
