Hi Karlo,

Try setting Browseable to Yes in the profiles section of smb.conf. I had 
the same problem as you and this solved it.
If you still have this problem after changing the setting you should try 
  using a debug build of userenv.dll on a workstation. The debug build 
of userenv.dll will write a logfile describing every step of 
saving/loading roaming profiles.
