Where do you 'think' the profile dir is set to?  Not trying to be 
demeaning, I would like to know so perhaps I could give you the right 
line for smb.conf.  You currently have this in your smb.conf:

logon path = \\%L\%U\profile

This gets expanded to \\servername\username\profile and then stores the 
profile data there, which seems to be what you are describing since 
\\servername\home usually equates to the user's UNIX home directory if 
you have the 'standard' homes share.
