Problems pushing Group Policy over a VPN tunnel

I gave a problem pushing group policy over a VPN tunnel. I have set the slow link detection to 0 but, but still when you log in with a domain account, none of the administrative templates have taken effect. Any ideas what I should check next?
Group Policy will process differently depending on how you choose to log on. If your users are already logged in (via cached credentials) *THEN* choose to VPN in using, say, an icon on the desktop – they will get Group Policy only during the background refresh. That is, about 90 minutes or so AFTER logging on. However, if they choose to log in at the CTL-ALT-DEL screen with the "Log on using a dial-up connection" checkbox, they should immediately see Group Policy apply after connection.
