[Samba] My Documents on Win98 in domain not persistant

have created a domain and access to user dir is no problem, profile is 
created and all seem OK, but it isn't. When I try to change the path of 
My Documents on the local machines to their userdir on the server, I can 
do it but when I close the properties window and then look again I get 
the old entry and can't access it.
Access by the neigbourhood icon works well. Home directory on server ist 
writable. I have to edit the registry manually to change My documents 
path. What could be wrong?

Here part of my smb.conf:
