[Samba] Roaming profiles problem

I've a samba server set up with a ldap backend an I'v configured it to use
roaming profiles (ie: logon path = \\%L\%U\profile), the users homes are
exported by nfs to the server.

My problem is that the profile of the user always end up in C:/Documents and
Settings/$user .

I've already erased the local profile  and the profile directory in the users
home dir, but every time that I login the profile dir is created on users home
but nothing is placed there...

If I login with a user in my windows client nothing is coppied to this directory
when I logoff. Sometimes it says to me that there's is no space left on the
device. (wich is wrong...).

I'm really confused because according to docs If you want roaming profiles you
should set logon path to \\%L\%U\<some dir to store profile stuff>, wich is
almost the default: \\%N\%U\profile

I don't think that this is a question of permissions since the server creates
the $user_homedir/profile dir correctly....
