Remote Desktop, Mapped Local Drives - Disappearing

I have 2 clients who access my network via "Remote Desktop" via their laptops, running Windows XP, doing the RDP connection to a Win2003 server.

Suddenly their normally mapped 'local' hard drives are no longer coming into the RDP session.

Both laptops have the 'map local' checked.

From the TS session, the users cannot manually map their drive either, since their laptops do not show up in the "browse" list.

Why would 2003 ask if I want drives mapped, then NOT map them??  IS that a group policy?  Some OS setting somewhere?
Is it a TSprofile issue?

Besides the 'map local' drives at connection, where else can I control this setting?
