A trivial suggestion but : if the local pc is short on diskspace you get
this effect. Just a suggestion...

Again, I've seen this in relation to diskspace shortages, starts when the
domain profile area is short of space and user profiles cannot be copied to
the server. Each logon makes a new entry and then the client soon fills up.
Especially if you have lots of users per machine.
