[Samba] Logon Script Sometimes Does Not Execute

I've been searching through the list archives on marc.theaimsgroup.com, and
haven't found many suggestions relating to this problem. What's happening,
is that maybe 5 out of 100 network logons the logon script does not
execute, and none of my drives are mapped. This happens on both NT 4.0
Workstations as well as Windows 2000. It's been happening as long as I can
remember (since several years ago when I started using Samba) and I've
never found a way to solve this problem. I can't find any links between the
times this happens and anything else. It just seems to happen at random.
Does anyone else have this problem, or have any suggestions for trying to
solve it?

I'm using Samba 2.2.8 on a FreeBSD 4.5 server, but, as I said it's been
happening for a long time using all kinds of versions of Samba. The server
itself has very little load on it; usually the load averages hover around
0.04 or less.

In the global section of my smb.conf, I have
logon script = %U.bat

And the [netlogon] share is like so:
  comment = Network Logon Service
  path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
  admin users = dataiv
  read only = No

Thanks for any help or suggestions,

David van Geyn
