I  have  had  the  same problem with Samba 2.0.5a-1 / NT 4 workstation
-SP6.  The  only  fix I was able to come up with was to not map drives
in  a  logon  script  but map normally through Network Neigborhood and
select  to  reconnect at logon. This is definitely a wierd problem and
my guess is that it is a SP6 problem.
