Apologies for a belated response - the problem went away and I was thus unable
to get more detailed reports.
However we do have a work round that has worked for every isolated case that
has happened since:
On the Windows machine that is being logged into - making sure the user has
logged out - then in C:\Documents and Settings
for user say bloggs renaming the directory there: bloggs.bak as bloggs
... from my colleagues checks with Microsoft this problem affects pure
Microsoft environemnts too.
