Default Samba creates huge tmp, prf files on XP client and doesnt load profile.

Hi all,

I have configured samba in Ubuntu 8.04 as a PDC and roaming profiles are enabled. Here's what is happening, whenever users log off, it creates huge tmp and prf files on the desktop of each user. The files size is about 3GB!!! So, the user takes atleast 15mins to login again.

I have deleted these files as root, but i don't know how these files are created again! Below is my smb.conf file. I have created a profiles share for the users.
