XP delete roaming profiles on exit as well (or as badly) as W2k.
You need to install the "User Profile Hive Cleanup Service".

Expert from the README file:
UPHClean v1.5e readme.txt Updated March 4, 2004 by Robin Caron

We are using it with roaming profiles, mixed folders redirection imposed by an adequate NTCONFIG.POL

W2k and XP profiles coexist rather well, NT don't.
