A domain user (standard rights) on a SBS 2003 domain is not loading his roaming profile upon login to Windows XP. Getting the error message:
"Windows cannot copy file lists files and folders Windows cannot load. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.

DETAIL - The filename or extension is too long. "

also this error:

"Your roaming profile is not available. You are logged on with the locally stored profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.

DETAIL - Incorrect function. "

I checked the domain controller, the permission of the profile folder on the server is fine. I even added the username to Auditing and Owner of the profile folder. Interesting thing is that after restarts, the roaming profile loads sometimes but after logging off and logging on it goes back to unable to load profile.

What might be causing this?
