Terminal Server Error 1030

I have a customer with a 2 server Microsoft Load Balanced cluster running Terminal Services.  We have about 125 users on this network that for the most part are problem free.  We have an issue were about 5 users get the following errors...

Event ID - 1030
Source - Userenv

Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

I have gone through every MS KB article out there and the problem still happens, on both terminal servers and at random times.  I have deleted and recreated the profiles on the DC and on the TS's still to no avail.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Any specific group policy? Any problems with replication?

How can I check for any specific GP?  It doesnt state anything other than this in the errors...

No other messages other than this for about 5 users every 3 hours or so per user.

These users, there not all newer than the rest and your default profile has an error in it? Anything common between them?

Are there roaming profiles (I'm not sure whether roaming profiles are actually used in TS)? In that case they may all have a common application installed on their own workstation that causes a problem.

Have a look at;en-us;Q216358 (Troubleshooting Group Policy Client-Side Extension Behavior).  

Also, what kind of group policys for the users do you have in place? Do they deny access to a certain path on the server necessary? What if you change the user to an administrator? Does it go away? Then you know it's to do with security.
