[Samba] Roaming Profiles and Mapped Drives

I have a weird problem with a Linux  Server acting as a PDC with Samba 3.02. 

If I map a particular Samba  share as the "Z" drive -- and I use roaming 
profiles with a logon.bat script --  the share will NEVER automatically reconnect 
when logging on again. This happens  100 percent of the time. 

And now the same thing seems to be happening  for any shared mapped as the 
"M" drive. 

Using any other letter for any  share works fine -- the mapped share always 
comes back as the same drive letter  with each subsequent logon. 

Any ideas what could be causing this? It was  no big deal to tell my users to 
NOT use the letter "Z" -- that's an easy  workaround. But now things are 
getting messy if there's another letter that  can't be used.
