I made a small change to the login script. When checking the profile size of the user's home directory the N directory should be omitted since this is part of the users 50 MB. I excluded that directory and it sped up the logout process a bit. It currently seems to spend most of the logout process rsyncing the profile. In the end I've removed rsync and the script instead copies the data that has been updated over. The algorithm used by rsync greatly reduces network bandwidth by only transmitting the deltas of the file. However, this is extremely slow when dealing with a few hundred configuration files.
