[THIN] Infrequent but annoying printer mapping problem.

Environment is NT4 TSE / MetaFrame SP2.

Occasionally, I'll have a printer fail to map when a user logs in.  The only
resolution that I have seen to this is to have the user logout of Citrix,
remove their print driver, and re-add it, then have them log back in.  I've
compared the driver files and registry entries for the printer before and
after, and found no differences... Yet suddenly they are back in business.

I'm pretty sure the only printers this happens with are shared network

Anyone have any idea what else I might look at to fix this without
deleting/re-adding their printer and driver?
