Using the terminal services profile tab as well as the proflle tab causing corruptions

Hi guys, we have recently been through a major company re-structure, and currently have and number of users off site, are problem is, we have a number of users that are sited a few miles away which we have a leased line link so they logon the our domain as a think client, to save profile traffic we copied all profiles locally which works fine, the problem now is that some of these users work from home and connect via RDP to our terminal servers which are situated in a different location to where they work, and it takes them upto 5 minutes to log on, because it is having to copy the profile up the lease line.
I decided to as a short fix use the "Terminal Services Profile" tab in AD to store a copy of their profile in the same location as the terminal servers, but this is causing problems daily and corruptions are some how happening... Is their a more effective solution to use in this situation ( sorry for the essay :-) )

why are profiles being copied anywhere if users are connecting to a terminal server?

Hi Northcide, we use roaming profiles, we decided give the guys full profile usage when in terminal services as the type of work they do, so when they logon it copies the profile from a file server (which some guys profiles are situated in another phyiscal site) the ones that are situated in the same site as where the terminal servers are, theres no problem. thats why I applied using the terminal services profile which I created on same site as the TS's
