order of login script & startup folder

Dear Experts,
Does anyone know something about the execution order of an AD login script and shortcuts/programs in the startup folder?
We have a login script, which does a 'net use * /D /Y' in order to remove any existing drive mappings. It then does some drive mappings for the user's home dir etc. etc..
In addition to this, I wanted one particular computer to do a drive mapping of its own. I thought it was as simple as putting a batch file in the startup folder of this particular user's profile on this particular machine. However, as the user logs in, the startup-script apparently executes before the login script, resulting in the login script deleting the newly made drive mapping.

Any suggestions on doing this in a more beautiful way than adding a sleep-command in the startup script?

Also, any info on the execution order of startup vs login script would be highly appreciated.

Thank you!

As opposed to deleting all drive mappings, you could remove them individually like this:

REM Remove H: mapping
NET USE H: /DELETE >nul

REM Map H: to users share
NET USE H: \\Vader\Users /YES >nul

I am not sure of the startup order, but I do know if you run your login script through group policy, it tends to run near the end.
