Long delay between event ID 551 and 538

I have a terminal server with 2003 sp2 that shows some odd behavior. A user can log off the server using the log off function. This will generate an event in the security log #551 (User initiated logoff). The corresponding event 538 does not appear sometimes until hours later for that logoff event. Any ideas what this is about? Thanks!

Yet another absurd shortcoming of Microsoft's. How wonderful! My decision to move to Linux is confirmed each and every day. Thanks for the help!
