Default printer - terminal services session

Hi,

Current issue.
User logs into thin client 1 which has attached local printer set as default
Same user goes to thin client 2 which also has local printer attached (should be default)

However, as user is still logged into thin client 1, printer redirects to thin client 2 and becomes default (tcprinter 1 on session xx)

Anyway to stop this happening in Windows Server 2003 ? Im looking at local group policies..

Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Client/Server data redirection..

I am guessing i should enable -

Do not set default client printer to be default printer in a session

Can someone let me know if I am the right track ?  If not, any ideas ? :(

Found the solution, users where allowed to create multi-session, turned this off in policies.
