Thanks for the incantation -- we will be turning off "roaming profiles."
Even so, it still seems that smbd takes *way* too many cpu cycles
-- it should be more network and/or disk bound than cpu bound -- at  
thats my experience with nfsd. Maybe something is misconfigured
with smbd on our system -- I dunno.
--thanks, w
