Booker-

Unfortunately there are a ton of causes for this error, including network stack 
timing issues, AD or SYSVOL replication issues, DNS configuration problems or 
inconsistent permissions across a GPO.  Also, I think you said it was just one 
user? If so, then my guess is that its more likely something with this machine 
rather than an infrastructure problem. Do any other errors appear in the System 
log on this system?

- Is the time properly synchronized across your domain?  (+/- 5min. max for 
Kerberos)
- Do you have multiple DCs, and if so, a) is your SYSVOL replication 
clean/complete?  b) is this happening on all DCs, or only some/one (site 
replication)?  (Might wanna store %LogonServer% somewhere to see if there's a 
pattern.)
