in addition to the regular logon entries, you need to have these entries in
smb.conf (thanks to John Terpstra for showing me the way):

 logon drive = z:
 logon home =
 logon path =

You can also make the last line in your logon script:
net use z: /d

That will make sure that there is no left over z: drive. You do need the
logon drive for your logon scripts to execute cleanly.

I made the same mistake, because Samba defaults to roaming profiles unless
you specify non-answers here. I also recommend your reading the
policies/profiles section at the following link:

My best,
