Hi Felix,

your problem sounds familiar to me. Please check the permission in your 
profile directory.
Each active domain user needs a seperate directory with 750 as permission 
and the owner has to be
the domain user, e.g. "drwxr-x--- test 	users  test". You also need the acl 
support to save the
extended file attributes of Win2k like security permissions. The acl's are 
not necessary to solve
your profiles problem.
If you use acls please make sure that your filesystem also support acl's. 
That's take me a while :-)

bye Erik
