Windows 2003 Citrix Domain Remote Login Profile issue (new Domain)

I have a Windows 2003 Domain, with multiple Windows 2003 Terminal Servers with Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 installed.  This is a new Domain and new hardware/windows install.  When my clients are logging into my ASP in the new domain they are getting the following:

"Windows did not load your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile.  Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you log off.  Windows did not load your profile because a server copy of the profile already exists that does not have..." (cuts off there)

and is followed immediately when clicking on OK with:

"Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile.  Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off."  

However the profiles are roaming profiles and are set up through Active Directory in this fashion:  

\\Asp-dc\profiles\companyname\%username%

Share on the profiles directory is set to the master access group (ASP User) is set to full control.
Security for the ASP user group is also set to full control under the security tab.  

However when a user logs in, the profile folder is created, but not with the access needed, and gives the error message above.  If I take ownership of the profile directory, then the user will work till they log off, and upon logging back in the same thing happens over again.  

NOTE:  only session information is stored in these profiles so they can be blown away without consiquence.  

Things I tried:
I have also set the everyone to full control to see if I could get around this and it does not work.

Need help in resolving this situation.  Any other information needed will be supplied (screenshots available if wanted).

This is not exactly what you are looking for:

You may also want to look at

When a user logs in, who was granted access to the profile and what rights were they given?
Should be the user, SYSTEM and if set in the GPO, Administrators.

you could enable the userenv and check the log file. enable it on the TS and login as the user who has a profile problem.

if its a ownershipissue then this policy might help:

I am still testing out the solutions that the above have given.  I should know by the end of the day whether or not this has corrected the solution for me.  

Here is an article from MS that I found:
