Windows 7 with Novell Client 2 SP1 (IR 1)

When logging in, if the user is an administrator of the local computer, only one login is required (the Novell login is passed to Windows and the user is logged in). However, if the user is not an administrator of the local machine they are required to login twice. They login, receive Novell login successful and are prompted with a Windows login. The user enters their same password again and they are logged into the computer.

Is there a fix for this?

This occurs on both Windows 7 x64 and x32. The computer is joined to the domain and the user's password is the same for both eDir and Active Directory.

Thanks

We have resolved it. If I remember correctly, it was fixed in a client update. We're currently running IR5.
