Thanks Daniel. You got it in one and gave me another reason to dislike 
M$. The script doesn't run when I give the full path but does run when I 
just specify the name, while the box above it seems to require the full 
path to the profile (according to M$ documentation anyway). Who thought 
up this nonsense?  :)

So far as GPO goes, when I try to enable a GPO while logged in as a 
domain administrator, I get a permissions error. There is something 
going wrong even though I followed the Samba howto on provisioning 
Samba4, including passing all the suggested tests, and the stuff I need 
is currently working (roaming profiles and logon scripts).

The good part is that logons are currently a lot faster than under Samba3.
