I can concur, I've been having the same/similar problems with desktop redirection. Windows 7 SP1 and 2008 R2 SP1.
I've created a standard share and created sub-folders. Everyone has 'read' access rights with regards to permissions.
Curriculum > Desktop
Curriculum > Start Menu > Programs
The majority of the time, the redirection works, but it happened one afternoon that a whole bunch of laptops were not redirecting. I've only isolated the problem down to wireless laptops. It's never been a problem with wired desktops.
Wireless connectivity was fine however and I knew this as network drives and printers were mapping via GPO. Annoyingly the problem just cleared itself up and I haven't as yet got to the bottom of it.

Just to confirm I am using the following settings:
I'm not using the FQDN, exclusive rights is disabled and as I say, normally it works fine.
It hasn't happened since, and the event logs reveal nothing interesting. It is a bit of mystery. It should either work or not work!

I've had some feedback and the problem appears to be isolated to certain models of netbook - Toshiba NB250's to be precise. Every other model of PC, netbook, laptop - wired or wireless are working correctly.
These are all taken from the same image, they're sysprepped and automatically join the domain with an answer file. Network drives and printers are mapped, just not the redirected desktop. Any ideas as I am on site tomorrow. Many thanks!

This drove me nuts last summer, when we tried to upgrade to Win 7
So I cheated somewhat.
In the GPO assigned to the computer I created a reg key in GP Preferences:
"Common Desktop" in "HKLM\Software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ex plorer\user shell folders" to \\server\share\desktop
"Common Start Menu" in "HKLM\Software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ex plorer\user shell folders" to \\server\share\startmenu
Then I also did in the GPO for the use:
"Desktop" in "HKCU\Software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ex plorer\user shell folders" to "p:\profile\desktop"
"Start Menu" in "HKCU\Software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ex plorer\user shell folders" to "p:\profile\startmenu"
What I didn't do was redirect the "Startup" at any point though, so this still runs from the local machine, so we can load stuff up if necessary.
This gives them the "public" desktop and start menu, which is the shared one I control.
They also get their own desktop, and get to dump stuff in it the usual way they do at home.
