Share Point to wrong locations with DFS

When I connect to the share \\<servername>\Users the contents of \\Domain\Users is shown.

On the server I have a share "Users" which contains all user-profiles.
The URL  \\<servername>\Users\%USERNAME% was used to connect to the profiles.
I recently installed DFS and crated a namespace "Users" and a folder "Profiles" which points to the directory where the userprofiles are located.
On some (not all) client-computers, "My Documents" gives a message that the location "\\<servername>\Users\%USERNAME%\My Documents" does not exist when trying to set the new location for "my documents".
If I go to the "\\<servername>\Users" share, I see the new DFS share \\<domainname>\Users
Any suggestions ?
