I have a really odd permissions issue that has kind of stumped me&

We have a user who is unable to rename folders on a network share.   He receives an access denied error box.  

-The user has full NTFS permissions on the entire folder structure, and can create and delete folders, but is unable to rename them.

-The network share is a user folder where his local My Documents folder is redirected to.  The network share is mapped with a login script as U:\

-The same thing occurs even if you browse directly to the share with the UNC path.

- If the user logs into another workstation he is able to rename folders, in that location, normally.

- When logged in as admin on the users workstation I am able to rename folders in that location.

-I created a new profile for the user on the workstation and the problem still occurs.

-Workstation OS is XP Pro SP3

-Server OS is W2k3 SP2

Somehow it is the combination of that user on this machine which wont allow him to rename a folder, even a newly created one.  He can create, move and delete the folders without any problem; he just cant rename them.  This workstation was migrated from another domain using ADMT but it migrated successfully and hasnt had any other issues so I dont really see how that could be related.  We migrated 150 other workstations and this is the only place we have seen this issue.  

Any ideas?
