I was waiting for Rodney to chime in, but I can confirm this. The 
UNC-Charlotte College of Engineering does store profiles in AFS. I'm the 
not the Windows guy,  so I only know what Rodney has said. We have had 
small but persistent problem with the hanging of roaming profiles.  
Rodney has written scripts the delete hung profiles on reboot. From some 
research, the profile problems are not specific to AFS.

Here is Rodney's web page:
