That's exactly the problem. By changing the stock MS configuration (via 
policies) to put MyDocuments on the server, this problem is remedied. 
When all of the appropriate folders are thus configured, saving settings 
to the server (part of the logoff process) takes 5 seconds or so. It's 
an amazing difference.
