This again points to a DNS issue.  If you check your event logs on the 
client, you should be able to pull more info.

Double and triple check your DNS setup, both on the clients and servers 
and make sure you can resolve all the DCS from the client. Its a fairly 
common problem with active directory and DNS.

I suspect if you left it long enough, you would find that it eventually 
logs in, and you can successfully login. I've ran into this many times 
and occasionally I've waited 20 minutes for everything to fail and 
timeout before the desktop appeared.
