Not Using WINS.  How could I check the cache settings?
I would appreciate  taking a look at your script.

Any chance you're using WINS?  At first reading it felt like some record (other 
than pure DNS) might have expired, but then I got rather confused as to what 
you're describing.  Here's what I suggest, log the error codes to your mapping 
attempts, this way we can get a clue as to what is happening.  Also, when a 
problem seems intermittent, it means we're missing information, and in this 
case, I'm also wondering if there might be something in your cache that's 
changing the behaviour of your script/mappings.

If you like, I've got a personal logon script that logs to Windows Event log.
