I hate to take shots in the dark, but it almost sounds like your "problem users" have some process that has to time out (possibly multiple times) before they get to the desktop. Have you tried temporarily disabling the startup scripts and/or folder redirection, just to see if the problem users' profiles load more quickly on XP?

Also, can anyone in your business pinpoint the exact time this troubling behavior began? A timeline often will help to reveal leads.
