Possible Client 2 SP3 regression?

I'm using Client 2 SP3 and LDAP Contextless Login on Windows 7 x64 in a Citrix XenDesktop VDI trial. If I log in as myself or any user in my context it will go in fine. If a user in another context tries, they get the infamous "you are already logged into the network as user XXX, do you still want to log in as user YYY?" error, and it's always the same user (myself). This issue was supposedly resolved in Client 2 SP1 IR5

So far I've tried:

removing the context from the default login profile as suggested in a TID and on the forums
setting and unsetting the "save profile after initial login" option
setting and unsetting the TSAutoAdminLogin option in the registry

My next step is to rip out every instance of my user name from the registry to see if I can stop it from pulling my user name.

Has anyone else seen this issue, or is this a possible regression of the pre IR5 bug?

Any help is appreciated.

I'm seeing this (more as an annoyance) on a fresh install of Win 7 x64. The login works as expected, but then at the desktop, before the script results window opens (or perhaps the initial login hasn't gone through), I get the "you are already logged on as..." prompt. The GINA has the context specified (i.e., not using contextless login), and the prompt tells me that the username (alone) is already logged in, prompting to confirm logging in as username.context. Server is NW6.5 SP8.

I guess I'll roll this machine back to Client 2 SP1 IR5.

I don't work much with Windows, so when this thing came up, I wondered whether this was a known issue or I was the only one seeing it.

Thanks for posting!
