Offline files & redirected folders generate {GUID}.tmp files

I have a user that uses redirected folders in combination with offline files. He is working on a Windows Vista Business edition with SP1 and the latest patches. The folder redirection is to a share\his_username on a Windows 2008 file server. He has all rights to the \his_username  directory.

Whenever he works online he keeps getting these {GUID}.tmp files. He can delete them, but they keep coming back. I looked at the contents of the files and they seem to be copies of files that he has opened; the contents is often an Excel or Word file.

I already searched for sollutions, but they all say that it should be solved with SP1 for Vista.

Any ideas?

The fix was already known to me and I tried it before. It did not solve it the first time. But I retried it now and the user no longer complains.

So it seems that it did the trick.
