[Samba] PDC for XP: empty desktop and desktop.ini showing up

I'm trying to set up Samba as a PDC for Windows XP Professional (SP2).
It seems to work fine. Machine accounts are created automatically,
passwords between Unix and Samba users get synced, I can logon, profile
directories are created - but there's a problem.
I know that this is well-known, but it drives me crazy and I don't know
First of all, the initial profile is nearly empty. The XP style has been
disabled and my desktop shows no icons at all. It just looks "wrong" and
"half-made". Apart from that, the first logon works fine. However, any
subsequent logons display that nasty desktop.ini file in an editor.
In log.smbd I can't see (at default debug level) any error messages,
just the normal "X connected to service Y".
I guess that my empty desktop problem and the desktop.ini appearance
have something in common, but I don't know how to solve.
Does anybody know how to make Samba a working PDC for XP?
