The only problems I see with this is that a user can manually access it.
I leave it to them as a responsability: someone even recover their files 
from there in case they happen to delete them by accident.
Sure, sooner or later someone will delete his/her their profile: either 
it will be recreated or I'll get it back from the backup tapes.

I'd also be curious about the rationale behind that...

Probably. However, the whole system has been working this way for eight 
yeras or so, without the slighest problem... I'd need more than a rumor 
to convince them to switch...

In any case, this is completely irrelevant wrt Vista & Profiles, since I 
and Collen have different setups and still experience the same prolem.

  bye & Thanks
