Well... I created a new directory structure:
home directory = \server\home\username (unchanged)
profile directory = \server\home\profiles\username (new)
I've already switched one user over who was having a weird problem with
a printer not appearing on the receptionist computer (she covers for the
receptionist when she goes to lunch, etc). That problem is now resolved,
while nothing else I tried worked.
So, I'm hopeful that this will indeed fix these other mysterious
problems. After some reading on this, I'm embarrassed that I never
encountered this 'best practice' knowledge before...
Many thanks to Eric for the whack upside the head...
