If you set login home and path it will set where Windows gets the
profile from, but it still sync. To stop syncing all together you will
need to with a login script change the registry string
ProfileImagePath in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\key-for-user\] to the the server

However its probably better to change the the registry values for
invidual parts of the profile, I am currently trying to find these
values atm.
