The bizarrest thing to me. Researching this on the net I find
http://www.webservertalk.com/archive214-2004-6-198755.html. I disabled
the single nVidia device driver for the installed nVidia card, log out,
and the files are written to my profile area.

I don't know if disabling the device driver fixes all my problems, but
it helps.
