OK then, if the user can execute the script out of netlogon and the
system is joined to the domain, then I would suggest that you comment
out the the 'login scipt' (note misspelling) in smb.conf and then see if
the script is automatically run (the one called for by your pdbedit
entry).

I don't know if having the script named starting with a '.' would make a
difference either.

Also as a note, I don't reference the path for a login script, but
rather the login script name itself as it is assumed to be in the
'netlogon' share of the server providing logon services.

i.e. 'logon.bat' and not '\\server\netlogon\logon.bat'

I am not stating these things to be empiricallly correct, but rather as
this works for me.
