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  Since I have the remove when no longer applicable option selected, the default update operation changes to replace.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.

Try enabling this policy on the XP workstation:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\ Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon
