I want to use the module VFS_FAKE_PERMS for roaming profiles. When I use the option "writeable = yes" (see config [1]) the user profiles are write 
back the server (but they shouldn't, right?).
If I delete the writeable-option (see [2]) windows brings an error when logging off:

"Windows cannot update your roaming profile. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem 
persists, contact your network administrator." (Event ID: 1504)


    path = <path-to-profile-folder>
    browseable = no
    writeable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    vfs objects = fake_perms


    path = <path-to-profile-folder>
    browseable = no
    guest ok = yes
    vfs objects = fake_perms

Any ideas?
