[Samba] Samba 3 Windows 7 Temporary Profile on 2nd Login

I'm bashing my head against a brick wall against a strange Win7 domain
We have a Samba 3 CentOS server which for some months has been a problem
free PDC for a network of about 15 Win7Pro64 clients in a school.
Recently, for some reason, the following situation has now arisen:
* After client PC reboot, domain login is fine.
* After logging out of windows, any attempt to log in again immediately
leads to a temporary profile being loaded.
* If the client PC is left unused for several minutes, or is rebooted,
logging in normally is possible again.
I've tried quite a number of things, including rolling back a client PC
to an image from well before the problem occurred and removing the
antivirus from a client PC, and nothing seems to make any difference.
If I set "Do not log users on with temporary profiles" on a client PC
via gpedit.msc, I get an error "The user profile service failed the
login. User profile cannot be loaded" if I try to re-log-on too soon,
and this seems to reset the timer on when login will be possible again
to requiring a further 2 or 3 minute delay.
After a couple of days of googling and testing, this is sending me a bit
crazy. Has anyone else encountered a similar situation and solved or
worked around it? Or does anyone have any insight into possible causes?
