yep, i get this.  on _one_ machine, not the other.

it's all horribly inconsistent, inconvenient and PISSING ME OFF.

for example, i've just removed profiles from my account, deleted local 
and remote one, and let the w95 machine recreate one for me.

what happens?

i get to log in, log out, log in, log out x 10 with no hanging of either 
of the two machines.

i even get to run a basic script file (NET TIME \\CB1-GW /SET /YES ^M)

more later.  i don't like this profile stuff one very much.
