Why are some users not getting network drives from startup script?

Recently, we renamed a lot of our groups and finally organized our Active Directory structure.  Since then, a lot of users are not getting ALL the network drives from our startup script, only some.  I have put my own username inside the EXACT same groups as these people, and mine works fine no matter what computer I log in to.  If these people run the VBS script manually, they still get the drives.

We know:

1. People are still getting the login script (they get some of the network drives, they get shortcuts that are copied over).
2. If they run the script manually from its location, all the drives work.
3. If I put my username inside the exact same groups in Member Of, mine still work fine.

Basic Info:
Windows Server 2003 AD machines (x2), one domain, group policy with login script is applied to whole domain with the script being applied to everyone.  Login script is inside default domain policy under login script of user configuration.

Any ideas?  (Only THEORY/GUESS I have is that it takes too long for the script to determine if they are a member of a group and it just skips that part of the script)

Thank you,

Are there other scripts running?  Is the problem specific to a computer, or group of computers (i.e. you said your user works correctly, but is that on your computer or on a computer experiencing the problem)? Can you post the login script in question?

I discovered the problem.  The AD "tech" had the login scripts in a different folder than the one he was telling me to edit.  Sigh.
