Keith, are you sure about this? From my Google results it appears user settings
are stored in c:/winnt/profiles/ directory on Windows NT
OS: Windows XP → Windows NT

In my experience with NT4 Server SP5, it was kept in C:\Documents and Settings\,
however I think I've seen it both ways (NT Workstation put it in
\WINNT\Profiles, if I'm not mistaken). Although there was an "s" left off of
Documents and Settings. I haven't used WinNT for several years, so I'm sure
you're right.

Yes. I'd go ahead and finish up by marking the bug the right label, but I'm not
entirely too familiar with your procedures; wouldn't want to mark it one thing
and it really is another.

Keep up the good work (and sorry for the bugspam) :)
