Mapped drives not reconnecting

I'm having a problem in our environment.

I've been able to recreate the problem on Windows XP Pro Machine connecting
to the same server, (Windows 2000)

Here is the detail of the problem:

I log on with a local account to the workstation with full admin rights, map
a network drive using Explorer, to a Win2k server, (use the, Log in as
different user) - supply it with Domain credentials, and the share maps
wonderfully. Then I logoff and/or restart the workstation and it fails to
reconnect to the mapped drive. I double click on the drive in My Computer
and I see a "red X". If I double click on the drive, it "re-asks" for
credentials and works, but this is not desired.

I've seen numerous questions already on this, but none have been resolved.
I thought it may have to do with Windows XP Fast Login Optimization, but I
turned this off in Local GP, and still fails.

Please advise

What is the actual problem? What happens if you ignore the red
X?

Perhaps Windows is working as designed. Do you get any error
messages?
