Looks like the solution was rather simple.

If user profile matching OS doesn't yet exist, Windows attempts to 
create one under '[profiles]'. I.e., for user 'username' Windows 7 will 
attempt to create [profiledir]\username.V2

If it can't create that directory, 'Access denied' is written to system 
event log and a temporary profile is created.

The solution (following the default how-to directories structure):

# chmod g+w /srv/samba/profiles

The hint posted in


Note: taking the above into account, I believe that corresponding 
section (Using POSIX ACLs) should be updated in


namely, replace

# chmod 1750 /srv/samba/profiles/


# chmod 1770 /srv/samba/profiles/
