I set up redirection via GPO on windows 2003 AD server based upon this article http://www.msterminalservices.org/articles/Configure-Folder-Redirection.html.  The redirection for My Doc's, App Data, Desktop work fine.  However when I try to configure TS Profile redirection via GPO going to \\Servername\ServerShare I get this: (Does TS Profile redirection work in Win 2k8 using a win 2k3 AD GPO?

 Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.  

 DETAIL -
 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-2604539361-143801326-818847439-1702:
Process 1188 (\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-2604539361-143801326-818847439-1702\Printers\DevModePerUser

The profile is to be correct roaming and not redirected. Documents and other folders inside profile is redirected with folder redirection to be stored outside of (roaming) user profile.

The "Set path for TS roaming user profiles" is just pointing out the file server share where roaming profiles are stored for users logging on to the TS and the policy is working like it was in Windows Server 2003.
The logging (id=1530) is just a "normal" notification about that some process was still accessing registry when logoff process started and system is forcing unloading of registry to make the user profile able to unload correctly. This kind of logging will happen from time to time independent of if user profile is roaming or not. Comparing to UPHClean which earlier was an additional install, this functionality is now builtin in Windows Server 2008.

If the logging is recurring, you can use the 'tasklist' command to dump a list of running processes to track down what process is locking up the registry.
