Yes, I noticed.

The problem is, I want to disable roaming profiles for one user only.

We have like 50 users which have to use roaming profiles, and one 
"public" guest user.
As this public "guest user" is used on many workstations, it is 
undesirable to have roaming profiles for it.

If I do it your way (editing sambaProfilePath), I'd have to set a 
profile path for those 50 users, which would be time consuming, and 
would break our setup (we use many servers; in profile path you can 
specify only one server).
