[Samba] Logging-in takes 1 hour when changing computers

Hello all,

I've got a simple active directory server set-up with 5 computers and 
about 5 users which works reasonably well, but recently, when an user 
changes to a different computer, it takes about a hour for the user to 
log in.  However, future log-ins on the same computer is pretty much 
instant, but the exact same problems occurs when the user changes 
computers - even to one they've used previously!

I get the feeling the whole profile is being downloaded from the server 
as the client computer's hard drive is thrashing for the whole hour, but 
it shouldn't be taking about a hour, but a couple minutes at most?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

With kind regards - Piers
