Group Policy not working

I set up a group policy that runs a login script to map the shared and user home directory drives.  I linked it to an OU and enforced it.  After 3 hours it is still not working.

In the Group Policy Management Console, I can see it and everything looks fine, but when a user logs on it is not applied.  
RSOP show that it is applied.

The RSOP report shows the old login policy which i no longer valid as I replaced it with a newer script.  

What am I leaving out?

Is the user in the OU (or child OU) to which you linked the GPO?

"The RSOP report shows the old login policy which i no longer valid as I replaced it with a newer script."
Does this mean that you edited the old GPO and changed the script used or that you deleted the old GPO and created a new one?

Yes. Both.  I changed the script and then when that didn't work, I deleted and created the new one.

As I said, the GPResult is showing that the new policy (by name) is bing applied, but the workstations event viewer application log is showing that it cannot find the "old policy name".  

Thanks for you input here.  I have created many, many of these over the years but have not seen this before.
