OK, I thought it might be a strange interaction with the virtual disk mount,
so I simplified the situation by copying the profiles to the root partition.
I still have the same problem (which is comforting in a way, because I have
very little space on the root partition!)

I think the next stage is to use a protocol analyser I suppose. Anyone got
any suggestions?

It's annoying as I've got lots of windows people asking me to put a windows
domain server in, and if I can't get this working I suspect I'll have no
choice :-(
