Hi !

I think I have encountered a very strange bug in Samba 3.0.x. 

If I enable "DeleteRoamingCache" in the Windows Registry so that the profile
will be deleted a users logs off there is a problem with the desktop wallpaper
when the users log in again.

If the selected wallpaper is JPG, GIF or PNG it is not loaded automaticaly by
Windows. I have to open the Desktop properties and simply click OK to let the
image load. Images in BMP format are loaded without problems.

For testing purpose I reinstalled WindowsXP (first with SP1 and finaly with SP2)
and joined the domain. But the problem with the desktop wallpaper ist still there.

It seems to me that the profile is not loaded/saved faultless from/to the PDC.
Don't know waht it has to do with the image format but I cannot remember that I
had this problems with Samba <3.0.4. And on work we have no problems with an old
W2k PDC.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
