Thanks for the idea, but no.  Just one occurrence.

I'm pretty sure the namespace with the collision is the profile.   
There is already a Desktop and it wants to create another.  Note that  
I am *not*
adding this user, it is already in the system and the profile is  
already on the share.

PS: to followup the group membership nonsense I was seeing yesterday.   
In the evening I logged in from home and saw the group membership was  
correct for that user.  Nobody was logged on, and I certainly didn't  
fix it.  I wonder if there was a cache somewhere which timed out.
