Oops, I meant logon home, not logon path; your config looks good to me.

No other suggestions, really; I might try replacing %L with %h or a
hard-coded server name, in case there's some weird NetBIOS resolution
problem going on, but that's really a shot in the dark.

Craig White had a suggestion (which didn't seem to make it to the
list?) to try first unmapping the drive in case persistent settings
are causing problems:
net use u: /delete
net use u: \\server\homes\%U
