NT4 PDC with XP SP3 clients can not save their roaming profile. SP2 could, but not SP3

OK Experts, believe it or not we still have a NT4 domain controller.  Roaming profiles have always worked fine, however they recently stopped working when the XP workstations had SP3 applied to them.  The shares are all visible and I can manually open files on the server in the users profile path.  The workstation just cant save the roaming profile to the server upon logoff, nor will it read the profile from the server when logging on.  I built a new machine with XP SP2 on it, and everything works fine, and then I applied SP3 to it, and the same thing happens. Anyone know what might be happening here and is there a workaround? Thanks.

yes it is the same problem, thanks.  I tried everything on that thread with no success.  However I came back to my question to update it with this comment because the big Tuesday update released on 4/12/2011 has fixed it and suddenly all of my XP machines are once again able to save and load their roaming profiles again.  I tried to identify the particular update that fixed it, but was unable to isolate it.  In any case, if someone stumbles across this thread again, hopefully using windows update will restore functionality.  Broken for about a year, and suddenly fixed.....
