I also have my logon scripts set to "%G.bat" and they run perfectly.

Are your scripts in DOS format? They must be, because they are read by 
the Windows side. Use the command unix2dos to make sure that all lines 
end with CR+LF, as used by standard text files under DOS/Windows.

One thing I once noticed was that the Samba account attribute 
"sambaLogonScript" must ONLY be set for a user if it DIFFERS from what 
is specified in "smb.conf". Otherwise, the script wouldn't run. I found 
this with the Samba 3.1x family, I don't know if that still applies.
