Mac user cannot log onto computer without unplugging the network cable

By arlington750 ·
My office has a primarily Windows environment (Server 2003 SP2) but also has 3-4 Mac's thrown into the mix. One such machine is used by user that cannot log in unless she first unplugs the network cable. With the cable unplugged, she can log in with no trouble at all. After logging in, she can plug the cable back in and continue as usual.

She recently got married, so we changed her username (first initial, last name) to reflect the change in Active Directory. I suspect this has something to do with the trouble.

Any other user is able to enter their login name and password and log into the system with the cable plugged in.

While working on this issue, I ran a Permissions Repair through the utilities provided with OS X (10.4), and she reported being able to log in with the cable plugged in successfully once. The next time she logged off and back on, though, she had to unplug again.

I am sure there is a lot of critical information I am omitting, so please feel free to ask questions so that I can get you all the info you need.
