[Samba] folder redirection of my documents

I have a PC running XP that several users share.  I've logged in as them 
on it and right clicked on my documents and redirected it for each 
person to r:\my documents so that their roaming profiles will load 
faster.  I've ran into a problem that when anyone logs out on this PC, 
XP attempts to synchronize my documents of everyone that has logged into 
that PC with folder redirection.

for example users awilliam, cdear, rcole, all have folder redirection on 
that PC, upon logout, a synchronization dialog box pops up with:

c:\documents and settings\awilliam\my documents synchronizing to 
\\server\awilliam\my documents
c:\documents and settings\rcole\my documents synchronizing to 
\\server\rcole\my documents
c:\documents and settings\cdear\my documents synchronizing to 
\\server\cdear\my documents

but, awilliam doesn't have write permissions to rcole and cdear, so XP 
pops up a login/password box.  Only way to get rid of that dialog box is 
to stop and skip the synchronization.  I'm running samba 3.0.23c on 
CentOS 4.4.  Any suggestions?
