 Similar result for me. Didnt test to far (did a remote upgrade on a weekend)
but my own (remote) pc made multiple connections to netlogon and didnt 
run the scripts, and I noticed some one else (in a supposedly empty building)
caused the same effect. They went to a different PC in the same room and
tried  on that one as well, leaving 2 sets of connections to the netlogon
