[Samba] logon drive = Z: causes problems

I left "logon path" to default.

This is the config I WAS using:

logon script = %U.bat
logon path =
logon home = \\%L\%U
logon drive = U:

In most cases it worked OK but with over 1000 users I got too many reports of U drive missing and
had to revert back to the old config.
