[Samba] Win XP SP2 and Offline Files

Im not shure this is same problem as mine
When using offlinefolders the windows default action is to syncronize all 
users that ever loged on to the workstation at one time or another. If you 
have the offline folders pointing to the users home directory this will fail 
as it is trying to save to other users home directory. The solution for me 
was to make shure that it only sycronizes folders from the user currently 
logging out. This is a group policy at
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files

and the option is

Syncronize all offline files before logging off = DISABLED

However as I see it if more users are currently logged on their files will 
not be sycronized if the machine is shut down.
