Slow printer mappings

We are using the thin print redirect to get user printers into their view desktop.  We are seeing an issue where it taking a long time (upwards of 5 mins) before printers are available in the view desktop.  This mainly happens after a user disconnects from the view desktop and then reconnects (initial logon tends to go quicker).  Has anyone else experienced this or have an idea to speed up printer redirection?

Also, is there a way to control which printers get mapped to a virtual desktop?  Some users have 15 printers on their physical desktops but only need a couple in their virtual desktop.

Not sure of your environment but this is what I've done to control printers within View Desktops.

1. Use Group Policy that deletes all printers on the physical machine.

2. Use Group Policy to create the printers the user requires on their View Desktop.

I'd like to use ThinPrint but my end users want the full feature set of the printer driver and ThinPrint doesn't offer that.

Hope this helps, it was a real challange during my testing and pilto phase.
