    Vista roaming profiles have a .V2 extention so i presume mandatory ones work the same, so you could have Administrator and Administrator.V2 . So i presume if there are 2 Vista would look for the mandatory profile with the .V2 at the end.

    How do you do your mandatory profiles? Default User in the Netlogon share?

    If so i'm guessing a

    Default User and a Default User.V2 in the netlogon share would solve it.

    This Guide explains all about vista roaming profiles, and also how to use them in an XP mixed environment.
