Did you do a re-install of the OS when you installed on a new physical 
machine rather than virtual machine?  I'm almost positive this is a 
result of something that's done to the OS post installation, as I'm able 
to reproduce this reliably on only certain machines that have been 
derived somehow from our standard XP image.  Our standard XP image does 
not share this problem.  I'm hoping someone can help us narrow down what 
the root cause of this behavior is so we can get it added to a FAQ or 
possibly the HOWTO.  Anyone else have any other ideas?
