What do your logs tell you on the domain controllers? Go to the event viewer and start looking at the Administrative events for errors and or warnings. Re-post any errors with errors with NETLOGON, DNS, DHC or any others that look important. Without detailed information it's hard to say. Client side logs would be helpful too.
Also in order to setup the sync partnership, the user needs to have browse rights to the home folder

How did you set up the shared home folder and when you did you set it up so is it "always available offline?
when I look at the home folder\\servername\home

it not checked for always available offline
it should be
that may be the case, let me try and will keep you posted.
If that does not work, refer to this link

It talks about browse rights but what they are actually talking about is Traverse Folder rights. Use this link to understand where and how to use it.
