Problem with TS Profile path

I am trying to diagnose a problem with a new terminal server 2008 we have recently installed.

Basically whenever a user tries to log on the server everything works well except for the user profile not being loaded, the system (through the event log) complaining of an invalid network path. The interesting point being that if I type the user's TS profile path into the windows explorer it works just fine... (both within the user session or the admin session on the PDC).

Anyway I have tried to launch Sysinternals ProcMon in the admin session and attempted a user login. Unfortunately I can't find a single event in the ProcMon log referring to the offending network path - so apparently the system is not even trying to access it... All I see is a rather strange (failed) attempt to create a file on the PDC in Path:      \\;RdpDr\;:3\PDCserver\Gentek\

I have tried to clear the TS Profile path - login is successful with a local profile being created. As soon as I re-apply a TS Profile the error reapers.

Any help & suggestion most welcome
