The title says it.
Yes, I have checked the (ineffective) box that says 'Reconnect at logon'. It doesn't work. Is this feature simply broken? I  have seen this behavior both before and after installing Service Pack 2.

how are you mapping the drive?

The logs don't mention it of course. I'm mapping the drive like we all have done it since the NT days:
Explorer -> Tools | Map Network Drive.

It's so simple, and doesn't work, and that's why I'm asking this question: is it broken?

Also, if anyone wants to try and answer this question, we have noticed another symptom which may be related: in Explorer, when clicking on the Network item in the lefthand pane, we expect to see the other machines on our domain. Instead, we wait around 3 full minutes for this computer to find them all; then they're listed.

What's happened to Server 2008? On all of our other 200 and 2003 machines, there is not this huge lag in discovering other domain computers.

Turns out it was an incorrect domain setting. Nothing was wrong with the users - it was our sysadmin.
