Bizarre home directory mapping error 2003 server

I have users home directory paths set within their user accounts as follows:

X:\ maps to \\servername\home\joebloggs

which has been absolutely fine until recently.

However now i find some users home directories are mapping to X:\ = \\servername\home.

If they log off & on again then the issue resolves itself and the home folder is mapped correctly.

X:\ maps to \\servername\home\joebloggs

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

You should set the following setting in GPO which applies to OU with your computer accounts: Computer configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon: "Always wait for the network...." to "Enabled".
