Problems logging on as a user with a .man profile

I have a Windows 2000 AD environment. I have added a vbs script to a group policy. The policy was added to an OU for students in our district. All students are set up with .man profiles. The script runs perfect if I create a new user that is not pointing to the .man profile. If I log on as a user that has the man profile the script does not run. The only thing different about the test users that I have used is that they do not have a profile defined. Is this due to the fact that the man profile cannot be changed...would that affect a script from running? All that is does is map several network drives and several printers. Help!!!
