Does the manually added dir have the correct ownership?  Has it been
chown-ed to the right user and do they have write access?  If the answer
to those questions yes but nothing is being copied up, then your problem
is that the user workstations are not looking in the correct place.
Either your domain controller is not advertising the correct location,
or it isn't advertising *any* location for profiles.
