Profile not roaming as intended after workgroup migration to domain

I migrated a workgroup network to a domain (Windows 2008 R2) and implemented roaming profiles. I decided to migrate user local profile to the domain using the ForensiT migration tool (http://www.forensit.com/downloads.html) But here's the tricky part that I overlooked : the local username profile was different from the standardized chosen form (John Doe vs jdoe on the domain) On the local computer, no problem but when roaming everything is falling apart. ForensiT does not change or recreate the user profile folder so the old username stays and therefore a lot of the profile cannot roam. My question which I have been a while puzzled with is : How can I fix that without having to mess around with the actual profile. This is a lawyer's office and they have a lot going on so messing around with the profile is quite slippy.
