When I turn on a NT4 box and log on a SAMBA 3.0.0 server, the roaming profile is correctly loaded. When I logout, the profile is also correctly saved back on the server.

The problem begins when the next user (another user) logs in. Don't know who, but SAMBA or NT4 will load the last logged user profile.

I.E.: i turn on a NT4 box, log in as 'daniel', log out, log in as 'dumb'. In this case, 'daniel' profile will be loaded for user 'dumb'.

Below is a copy of smb.conf.
