*sry* now to all:


I have exactly the same problem.
Just installed 4.1.0, roaming profiles are working, only the user has
access to it, but Users Home Shares are visible and writeable for all.

        comment = Home Directories
        directory_mode: parameter = 0700
        path = /home/HOME/
        read only = No
        csc policy = documents

     path = /home/Profiles/
     read only = no
