no, i want to have a profile dir created when a new created user logs 
in. that's it. :)

in my setup it doesnt get created.


drwxrwxrwx  4 root   root    4096 Feb 12 10:51 samba
drwxrwxrwx 16 root   root   4096 Mar 16 11:50 profile

should be working for automagic creation.

is there an special option on that?
