I had the same problem after upgrading to 3.0.23 from 3.0.22. On some
XP and win2K machines after logging in an error box appeared saying
the the profile could not be loaded. There were no samba errors and
after logging in with a temp profile the user could fully access all
the files in their profile. It turns out that  setting the following
in the global settings fixed the problem for me:

profile acls = yes
