[Samba] Roaming profiles brings error with prf*.tmp files

We have an Apple OSX 10.3.4 Opendirectory (LDAP) Server with an SAMBA
(3.0.2) PDC Server with roaming profiles for Windows XP (SP1 Prof) Clients
on the Server. The Share for the PCs is only shared with SMB.
When a PC log off, the profile will be copied to the server and brings the
error message that the files prf*.tmp can´t be copied to the server.
This error message occours not every time and only on large windows profiles
(bigger ca. 50 MB). The transfer to the server is very slow when the files
will be copied.
The problem occours on different Windows XP SP1 machines.
Is this a trouble on the server or on the windows clients?
I hope you can help me.
