SAP Installation Server and SAPLOGON.SAL...HELP!!!!

I've just applied a new patch to my SAP GUI 6.40 Distribution Service (Patch 19), and have run into the following issue:

When a workstation connects to our installation server, the NT file copy of the SAP GUI files works fine (Watch out with Patch 19, however), but there is an SAPLOGON.SAL shortcut file that is created on the desktop (as opposed to SAPLOGON.EXE). When I click on that shortcut, I get prompted that there is a "newer version of the GUI on the installation source" even though I've just upgraded. If I click NO, I continue on to the SAP Logon. If I click Yes, it reinstalls the SAP GUI files (and gives me the prompt that there is an update available after I re-launch the .SAL file).

I'm using SAP's Installation Server application for this process.
