Hi. I'm having the same problem and I reported it to the list a while
ago, but the only answers I got were like "it works for us, it should
for you". (N.B. this is no flame).
I though I was having some specific situation, since I was the only one
who seemed to experience this; perhaps we could compare our setups and
hope we can find something common which might be relevant.

I have \\PDC\username as home dir and \\PDF\username\profile[.V2] there.

Same here. Vista creates the profile.v2 directory and permissions seem fine.

Auhtentication is not an issue here, since the user can access every
share he should.

I tried every trick Google and the samba mailing lists could provide,
but still no luck.
_ FreeBSD 6.2/i386 + samba 3.0.28,1 PDC;
_ FreeBSD 6.3/amd64 + samba 3.0.28,1 BDC;
_ replicated OpenLDAP backend;
_ profiles in home dirs on PDC;
_ more than 30 2000/XP professional machines running perfectly;
_ 1 Vista Business laptop which refuse to roam profiles.
Here's my PDC's smb.conf:
debug level = 1
passwd program=/usr/bin/passwd %u
unix password sync=false
workgroup = XXXXXXXX
server string = xxxxx
hosts allow = 192.168.xxx. 127.
load printers = no
max log size = 5000
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
interfaces = fxp0 192.168.xxx.1/24
local master = yes
os level = 255
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logons = yes
wins support = yes
wins proxy = yes
dns proxy = yes
ldap admin dn="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
host msdfs = no
writeable = yes
msdfs root = no
path = /usr/local/etc/netlogon
bye & Thanks
P.S. netlogon scripts works too.
