I had one of the problem users logon to his network account on my
desktop, and he was unable to reproduce the problem.  It looks like
something on their images must be corrupted, so we are just going to
reimage.  Thanks for the help anyway.=20

Do you have a network traffic dump from one of those clients?  A
misconfiguration causing a timeout would be the first thing I checked
(e.g., bad addresses in the CellServDB), but seeing the actual network
traffic would show you if the client's were trying to talk to
non-existent systems or perhaps doing something you didn't expect.
