I diagnosed a problem recently where a system task running on a Windows 
client (wpkg) would not release oplocks on server files, forcing other 
clients to wait 30seconds to on each file to break the oplock. Disabling 
the F-Secure firewall solved this.

Could your problem be related?

If another client refuses to release the oplock on the profile data, 
windows might time out and use the default profile instead. When it does 
work the oplock may already be broken.

Just a theory to test anyway.
