Okay figured out my issue

Okay so my issue was related to the fact that I had my <All Users> account's start and desktop populated. So when I was testing yesterday I was actually getting the correct Default User profile copy, but it was not importing anythign from the all user's area - weird!?
Once I populated the default user profile with everything and gave permission to the <domain name>\Domain Users group (which you might have to set when it comes up with the check names screen; top most option - make sure it includes groups in the search), it worked nicely.

Let me know if this was at all helpful or if you think I omitted any crucial items in my set up prior to.
