samba-users: Re: [Samba] Windows Vista keeps on deleting cached

Re: [Samba] Windows Vista keeps on deleting cached roaming profile

The problem is not that the server profile is empty (i did that on purpose)
the files get, and stay, there when i logout from the vista client

the problem is that windows deletes the clientside cached profile from
c:\users\username, and also the relevant registry settings :(

the mailinglist archive gave me some great pointers to speed up the login
process though!
