User Folder Creation at First Login

I have folder redirection setup and working for existing users, however, anytime a new user is logged in for the first time, their user folder  is not created automatically.  If I create the folder manually for them, at the next login folder redirection works and desktop and my docs folders are present.  This seems like a permissions issue, however, all permissions seem accurate to me.  I have GPO's in place, applied and working with access-based enumeration.  If I try browsing the folder (\\servershare\users\), I can access the folder with no other files or folders showing (which means A-BE is working).

Server: 2012 R2 Client Windows 7

USERS share permissions Everyone - Full Control
Security: Inheritance disabled  Owner: My maintenance account

Folder Permissions:
System - Full control      This folder, subfolders and files
Domain Administrators - Full Control      This folder, subfolders and files
Creator/Owner - Full Control      Subfolders and files only
Folder Redirection Users -      List folder / read data1, Create folders / append data1, Read attributes, Read extended attributes, Read permissions, This folder only

For reference, I followed instructions here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649078%28v=ws.11%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Just a passing thought -- what about just adding a MKDIR command in the login script to create the folder?

Bill, thats a great suggestion.  Instead of me manually creating it, at least it would be automated.  The issue remains, however, and I would really like to fully resolve it.
We have a script which we use to create a new user and  create the folder through user account creation script and assign permission.

Tahir, I also utilize a script at login to perform various functions as well as Group Policies.  When configuring Folder Redirection, it is supposed to handle this function.  Its just that it currently does not work for new users.

Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong or how to resolve it?

Thanks
