Logoff issue: Cmd.exe - Window cannot end this program

We are using roaming profiles.  Yesterday I eneabled folder redirection using a GPO.  It seems like folders are redirecting ok, but now when users go to log off, they get a prompt saying
"End Program - C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
Windows cannot end this operation.  IT mayu need more time to complete an operation..."
If the users click end now the system logs them off like it should.

Any thoughts?

Do you have any idea why cmd.exe is running? Is it already running when users want to log off, or is it started by the logoff or shutdown scripts?

as soon as i log in as a user and view the task manager, i see cmd.exe running under the logged in users' account

i also notice that xcopy is running for that user as well.  My only guess is it has something to do with the redirection.

Try to find out why xcopy starts. (startup, registry, Logon script etc..)

We did once have a script to copy local data to the network on logout. With folder redirection and roaming profiles we don't need that anymore, and it could get in the way.
