Logically, there has to be something different between the old users and
the new ones.  Because there are some users for whom the samba config
works, I would tend to rule that out as a source of trouble.

Here are some other ideas.  Log into a Windows machine as one of the old
users and open a dos prompt window.  Type "set" (this is equivalent to
typeing "env" on a unix box) and have a look at the user's environment
variables to see if they are what you would expect.

You could also compare the sambaHomePath and sambaProfilePath settings
between old and new user records, as well as the "logon path" and "logon
home" settings in smb.conf and see if they jive with what you had in
mind. If not, then you need to check what ever script setup you are
using to add users.
