[Samba] Problem with moving PDC to new server

I am in the process of moving a PDC to a new server, the config, *.tdb 
files, linux user account files (/etc/passwd,shadow,group) and /home 
have all been moved successfully, shares and authentication is working 

When I login and the system loads my roaming profile all my "recent 
Programs" list are gone, I cannot add more programs to this list in the 
start menu (no error just won't show) and it appears other windows 
settings are not getting properly loaded either (i.e. I have a gray 
start bar instead of my normal green/blue bar)

Background on the move:
Old Server:
Ubuntu 6.06(i386) running Samba 3.0.22

New Server:
Centos 5.2(i386) running Samba 3.0.28

All Windows XP Pro previously part of the Domain

Any one have any advice for solving this issue?
