Drive Mappings don't appear everytime

I am using the Drive Mapping User Preferences with Server 2008R2 and some WinXP machines.  I have the client preferences patch loaded.  On the workstation, if I login and logout, it appears that the preferences specified Drive Mappings appear every other time.  I do not have the drive mapping preference persistent box checked, so it is not persistent.  I am using the replace option.  

I am wondering what I can do to make certain that the drive mappings get assigned every time.  If I have persistent check, they do appear every time, but then if a user is removed from the group that assigns the mapping, it remains until manually disconnected.

I cannot have the mappings work inconsistently.

It is every other time.  I do not have persistent checked.  Since I have the remove when no longer applicable option selected, the default update operation changes to replace.

Changing replace to update has not effect.
