[Samba] WinXP Client problem (damned tmp files in profile)

sometimes i have the same problems. 100 times the login/logoff works and one
times the profile sync fails. during the sync process samba or xp creates
tmp files. if it fails, the tmp files prevent the next login and i get the
message, that windows cannot load the profile - foo.tmp access denied or
whatever. for a login i have to kill these files and i know, that the
correspondent file is damaged (maybe). best example ist the Outlook.pst, all
emails are lost. alternatively  is not possible for me to put the pst file
to the home share, because during a long session xp lost the connection and
office hangs for 10 seconds, otherwise the connection is always very fast.
frustrating ...

greetings tom
