[Samba] samba user1 -> samba user2 migrating - how?

I have a situation like that:

Samba as a domain controller with roaming profiles enabled; Windows 200 SP4.

Old user Joe with a roaming profile (doesn't work anymore).
New user Bob which has to use Joe's roaming profile.

Simply adding user "bob" to the system and renaming the old profile 
(home/samba/profiles/joe) to a new name (/home/samba/profiles/bob) 
doesn't work.
Well of course the files get copied from Samba to the workstation when 
user "bob" logs on for the first time; but he can't really use the 
system then (Internet Explorer complaining about Active X etc. when 
using it for file browsing).

Anyone could help?
