[THIN] Re: Delete Profile - Local vs. Domain Policy

Well people have done all sorts in the past to workaround this, such as
using locally defined variables in the tsprofile path, and such.

Other sneaky, well thought out workarounds involve using specific
hostnames in the UNC, and locally defining them in host files on servers
where it should point to different machines.

Otherwise, as you seem to be investigating, you are looking at modifying
how the login environment actually processes the information stored in
the domain.
