Make sure you also don't have a profile share if you're using something 
like \server\profiles\%U, which is the default.  Setting a blank string 
should also work here.  Remember that your clients will probably 
remember what the profile path was for an account, so be sure to try 
with a fresh user.  Check the output of
pdbedit -v <username>
to be sure the server won't be giving out a (valid) default path.

This one won't work.  An empty string in ldap, as far as I've found, is 
a deleted attribute, so it will default to the server setting.
