At first you had better try a simple settings like me.

To look at your smb.conf, I tried with the smb.conf below:

  workgroup = SAMBA
  domain logons = yes
  add machine script = useradd %u
  map to guest = bad user

  logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
  hide files = /desktop.ini/ntuser.ini/NTUSER.*/Thumbs.db/

  writeable = yes
  browseable = no

  path = /var/lib/samba/shares/profiles
  guest ok = yes
  browseable = no
  create mask = 0600
  directory mask = 0700
  writeable = yes
  profile acls = yes

and although still my user can create profile dirs and files...
