Server logon slow - applying group policy printers policy

Dear Experts,

I have a Domain with 2 x DCs and another 6 member servers. Two of the member servers have Windows server 2008 x64 and the rest have 2008 R2 x64.  Most clients have windows 7 x64 and a there's also a few Surface Pros.

I have a few customised GPOs for mapping drive letters and deploying printers - nothing too taxing at all.  However, when the printer policy is enabled, the two servers with server 2008 installed take forever to logon "applying group policy printers policy..."  And logging off takes even longer. The screen goes blank, only displaying the background colour.

This only affects those two 2008 servers. The other servers and all clients are unaffected.  If I disable the printer policy, logging on and off those 2008 servers is fine.

What could be causing this, and why is it only affecting those two servers?

Thanks in advance.

Change all of the printer mappings in GPP to Update instead of replace.
