There is a bad password cached somewhere.

Set it to 0 and that should clear it out

Do you know where it caches mapped drive usernames and passwords?

You could add this to your logon script
 

'Disconnect ALL mapped drives
Dim  WshNetwork
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set clDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
For i = 0 to clDrives.Count -1 Step 2
    WSHNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive clDrives.Item(i), True, True
Next
