I've had a notebook that came with Vista for about 1 1/2 years now. At
first it seemed to work 'ok' w/ samba. Then it seemed like profile sync
slowed to a crawl, I'm talking over 1/2 hour for 200-300 MB profile, and
even then it would tell me my profile wasn't fully sync'd. I recently
had to re-install due to the hard drive dying. I applied all the vista
patches before trying to login w/ my user profile, and it once again is
working fine - only a few minutes to sync. I don't know what was going
on, nor do I have time or experience to try and track it down, but I
thought I'd share to see it it rings a bell w/ anyone.
