Running OS 9.2.2 on a machine at work, using multiple users for logon.

Apple scripts in System's startup folder execute fine on a logon, but those in shutdown do not execute on a logout (only on a full, true shutdown). Is the shutdown folder not executed on a multiuser logout?

Just confused - clarity appreciated.

Cheers, Michael

P.S. the scripts are to simply turn file sharing on at logon, and off at logout. This is a temporary solution to a conflict with Retrospect and this machine. We use Retrospect for all our daily and weekly backups - WinNT/2000, OS9 and OSX machines. None of these machines are ever shutdown, just logged in and out of. I suspect the problem will disappear when we switch all machines to OSX soon, but am trying to get by for now.

Both scripts run fine as stand-alone apps, doing exactly what they are supposed to do. The script to shut down filesharing works fine as well on logout. It's just the one to turn file sharing back on at logon that fails (but it runs fine when manually executed from the desktop, just not when plunked in "shutdown items").
