Which is precisely the way it is designed to work...
Again - as far as I know, there is NO way to allow a machine to use the
same profile for two different domains - unless, as Alex pointed out,
the other domain is trusted, but you'll still only be joined to one domain.
One possibility would be to make sure that the other domain has a user
account created that is identical to the other one, but you will have to
manually keep the passwords in sync - meaning, if you change your
password on your main machin, you'll have to chage the password for that
account on the other domain account to be the same.

I would strongly urge you not to muck around with these registry
settings unless you really know what you are doing...
Here is a thread that discusses how user profiles are created that may
be of some help,
