I have a strange issue with roaming profiles.

It only happens for users which has no roaming profile on a Samba server 

When a user logs out for the first time, some files can't be copied from:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\SendTo\

to a profiles directory on the server.

(Files like 31/2Floppy(A).lnk, some *.tmp files etc.).

Only very rarely, a first-time logout process happens without any problems.
Second and any later logouts are without problems.

I found another reference on the list:


"When user logoff it appear

Windows cannot copy file C:\Documents and 
Settingsd\user\SendTo\31/2Floppy(A).lnk to location 
\\\domain\profiles\user\SendTo\3 1/2 Floppy(A).lnk. Contact 
your network administrator

Are there someone found like me?"

Is it a Windows problem, or Samba problem?

I'm using Samba 3.0.24.
