Windows 7: Startup script keeps running after user login

Hi, all, need some help.
We have Windows 2008 domain and are using GPO.
I made a startup VB script  to install MS Visio 2010 from netwok share (as MS recommends). Network share has Authorised users:Read permissions. I put this script into MS Visio 2010 installation GPO.
It all goes fine, no errors, but I found out that script it still running after user login and MS Visio is still being installed. There's no shortcuts for Visio, they appear only after installation completes (it takes some 6 minutes).
This behaviour is just mad. All I want is to get logon screen AFTER Visio installation -- which should be default behaviour of Startup script.
I set "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" to enabled
Still no luck, it keeps running after user login.

Any Ideas ?..

Found solution.
You should set "Run startup script asynchronously" to DISABLED at Computer configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Scripts
Description of this policy says:
If you disable this setting or DO NOT CONFIGURE IT, a startup cannot run until the previous script is complete.
This is obviously NOT TRUE
