Group Policy Preferences - Scheduled Tasks

I have a GPO that is pushing an immediate task, which runs fine on most computers. However, on the computers that have the same name as the username the task gets scheduled but it is set to run as a local user instead of a domain user. Typically it runs as domain\username but on these particular computers it sets to run as computername\username. I tried setting it to run in user context with the same result. I also tried a regular scheduled task with the same result.
The task runs as expected when logging in as a different user. The task also cannot not be run under a different user because of the nature of the task.
Any one know why this is happening?

If you give us more background, like exactly what you're trying to accomplish with this task, we may either have a better idea of how to do it or an easier time solving this issue.

We are using the immediate task to update the signature in outlook on every GP refresh. The task calls an exe with parameters depending on what OU the user is in. The update pulls info from AD to fill the signature.

Do the users have admin privileges on the machines?
