I'm not at all interested in sharing profiles between Vista and XP.
I just tried the symlink trick after reading someone's suggestion,
hoping I could get a Vista profile for this user, which doesn't have an
XP profile either.

Yours is not the first positive experience I read about. I'm just
wondering what might be different in my setup.

No, I wasn't using this. I had the chance to try it out today, but
nothing changes. XP/2000 boxes still happily transfer their profiles;
Vista does not.
