failed redhat password change on XP workstation

I changed user passwords in redhat and samba. One user did not log off and log in under new password the same day, he waited until the following morning. When he tried using his new password the following error appeared as windows was loading his personal settings, "Windows cannot copy file \\Main\dhein\profile\application\data\sun\java...." then windows logged into a temporary profile.

I can log this user into other workstations using the same user name and password and everything works great.

I'll appreciate any help I can get.
