This could be related too it also may not be but I figured I would add anyway:
To work around this feature, enable the Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon Group Policy:
Open the appropriate GPO.
 Expand Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Logon
Double-click Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon.
Enable the policy and press OK.
