Sorry. I _can't_ confirm this. I tried this exactly on my 4.1.13 test

After the first login the profile directory is created and if the
account loggs off, the profile is uploaded in there. And I made sure,
that this account has Domain Admin permissions. I also used this account
to add an additional account.

My test environment is setup exactly like described in
(with Windows ACLs). No additional stuff is done like other ACLs, etc.
It's 100% like documented there and works.

What are the differences between the HowTo and your setup? And what
Samba version are you running?
