When using German, drive mappings specified in the login script are mapped as expected. However, after switching to English, the user is successfully logged in, but no drive mappings occur.
After the desktop loads, logging in again (Red N > "Novell login") executes the login script and the network drives are mapped. After logoff/reboot, the problem reappears.
In the case of German, "STANDARD" is the correct translation of the profile named "DEFAULT" during the first phase of the login because the default Windows language (the language in effect before any Windows user actually logs on) is still German. But once the Windows user logs on, the Windows language configured for that user is English, and the translated profile name is now expected to be "DEFAULT" instead of "STANDARD". So referencing "STANDARD" at that point seems like a reference to "some other profile" besides the default profile, which is why no "Run Scripts" setting or profile of that name can be found.
