[Samba] logon scripts execute randomly

I use samba 3.0.9 as a pdc with ldapsam. In the ldap entries, for every user
there is a logon script sambaLogonScript. I only use two different scripts
for 1000 users and 100 computers. The scripts lehrer.bat and schueler.bat
reside in the netlogon share and provide more shares with the net use

>From the user's perspective, this often works well. sometimes, however, the
script is not executed, without further notice, and the users see only their
own home directory. more proficient users still can connect to the server
and use the other shares, but the less technically minded fail.

If it didn't work at all, I could maybe live with it, but this drives me
crazy ;-) The domain has only one server, so it shouldn't be a conflict
between two servers.

has anybody seen this before? google and a search in bugzilla have not
yielded much so far.

thanks for any input!
