Thanks ben6073 for posting your link to the solution. It worked for me as well.

I did a clean install of SL, joined the machine to the AD domain using Directory Utility. Restarted and when the other user option finally came up in the login screen it would just shake after entering my credentials. As if I was using the wrong password. I then logged in with the local admin account and using the Directory Utility disabled the mobile account option. I then restarted and was able to log in using my credentials.

MOBILE ACCOUNTS ARE BROKEN!!! At least for Active directory.

Thanks ben6073 for the link to a fix. And thank you Rich for the post on google.

    I have found that mobile account don't work until is tick the "Use UNC path from active Directory etc etc" box in the Directory Utility -> Active Directory -> Advanced Options, then my Mobile Accounts worked fine..

    I had this problem this morning. It went away after I rebooted and ran applejack in "auto pilot" mode. The machine is a macbook pro running Snow Leopard. The account is a mobile account tied to a windows active directory server. Applejack is available from http://applejack.sourceforge.net/. The auto pilot mode cleans out the system caches is /Library and /System/Library - perhaps this is what provides the fix? Just a guess.
