There is a setting in gpedit.msc somewhere to tell the PC to wait for 
network connectivity before showing the login box. (no idea where - find 
it yourself - sorry)

  Anothe option - I have one user woth a similar problem. She keeps 
getting 'duplicate machine name exists' popups appearing regardless of 
what I name her machine. The laptop caches her user details so she can 
log in fine, but generally has weird problems connecting to new shares. 
You might see the behaviour you are getting if there were machines with 
duplicate names - one would join the domain properly, wheras the other's 
trust account would fail but could log in with cached credentials and 
then have problems connecting to domain repated stuff.

hope that helps
