[Samba] Problem with Windows 7 and roaming profiles

Hello together,

we try to setup a samba domain controller with LDAP and roaming profiles for Win7-Clients.
Everything looks fine last Friday but today the clients did not longer save changes to the profiles. There is no error in samba log and also no in the windows log. If I delete a profile from a client it is loaded correctly at next logon, but the changes are not saved at logout.

Windows XP profiles are working well all the time...

Any ideas?

OS: Debian Etch
Kernel: 2.6.24
Samba: 3.4.5
Disk is mounted with "user_xattr"

        path = /home/samba/profiles
        comment = roaming profiles
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        browsable = no
        writable = yes
        read only = no
        store dos attributes = yes
