Unknown entry in Login items in AD environment with OS X 10.5.5

Looking for some clarification. When I first set up my Mac Pro at work, I bound it to active directory and I log in with my AD user account. This all works wonderfully. One thing that I did was to create an AppleScript to mount Windows shares in finder. This also works well.

After upgrading to 10.5.5 I started getting many kernel panics, mostly when logging out or restarting my Mac. After doing some research, it appeared that one "cause" was people who had "mapped' SMB shares from Windows PCs. So, I removed the script from my login items. However, I still had one left item left in login items that was grayed out and had a Kind of unknown. The item was an SMB map that corresponded to the drive that contains my AD User folder. So, I found in the directory utility where I could uncheck a box that would use the UNC path from AD to derive the network home location. I reasoned that this might be what was creating this entry in my Login items.

When I first did this and rebooted, I no longer saw that shared in Finder...thought I had fixed it. However, when I checked in Login items, it's still there, except that now both the item and kind fields are labeled unknown. I will say that my KP have dropped to almost none, so it seems that I may have "fixed' the initial problem. However, when doing AD binding, does your network home folder get shared automatically and does it end up in login items and can I successfully remove it or would that cause even more issues?

I have done this on another Mac with the same results so I think that this is just how it works.
