First of all do you have a separate profile share? If not then make one. 
This way each user will have a separate folder for his/her profile that 
only he/her has access to.
logon path = \\%logonserver%\profiles\%U

create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
path = /home/samba/profiles/
profile acls = yes
read only = no
writable = yes

if you have a profile share, then please check ownership to see hos 
access to what.

Venlig Hilsen (Best Regards)
