I had the same problem with XP.
Modifying the login script to delete the mapping first was the only cure I found.
and just recently I found Service Pack 2 fixes this in XP!
I don't know how the other OSs might be affected.

I think this is possibly a windows problem, I have had the same error in
high usage workgroup situations with win2000. There is a relatively
simple fix, I think if you search MS for the error message it is there.
