I just saw this post.
we have exactly the same problem with slight difference:

Win2k SP4 and Domain User: Cookies work once, but after roamed no more.
Win2k SP4 and Domain Admin: no problem
WinXP SP2 and Domain User: no problem
WinXP SP2 and Domain Admin: no problem

Anybody seen this?


Here is part of smb.conf:

         comment = Roaming profiles share
         path = /shares/profiles
         writeable = yes
         create mask = 0700
         directory mask = 0770
         browsable = no
         valid users = @users root
         force user = %U
         profile acls = yes
