My Documents Redirection

We are redirecting users 'My Documents' folders to a network share via a GPO. The path we have used in the policy is \\servername\sharename\%username%. However when a new user is created the folder that is created by the policy is called documents rather than the users account name. All permissions are OK and the folder appears with the correct name in the drive mapping. If I open one of the documents folders on the server I see the users name in the address bar. However if I access the share from my workstation via a unc path the user name is replaced with the word 'documents'.
We have 2 Server 2003 DC's and one Server 2008 DC. All workstations are running Vista Enterprise Spk 1.
Thanks for any help in advance.

Vista changed the behavior such that this is now expected behavior.  There are some new hoops to jump through to prevent this, described in: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947222
