Windows 7 Professional Domain Users

I joined a Windows 7 box to a 2003 domain and everything seems to work but I noticed when logging on it won't immediately connect to share drives, it will after 10 seconds or so.  I didn't think much of the issue until I went to run a CLI command and noticed the path was C:\Users\<username>.  Shouldn't it read C:\Users\<username>.<DOMAIN>?  I should mention that when logging in to the system the 'Log In To' line does have the domain name.  Thank you in advance for any help.

It will only show username.domain if a folder with the username already exists.
ie: If user is Fred and he has an account on the Win7 computer it will be C:\users\Fred
If the computer is joined to a domain called Flintstone then a new profile will be created with a path of C:\users\Fred.Flintstone
If Velma now logs onto the same computer that is now connected to the domain, her profile path will be C:\users\Velma

Hope that clears it up for you.
Not sure what is causing your 10 second delay during logon.
