outlook calendar item created as "sent on behalf" incorrectly

I am at a loss.  We have one user who is a delegate of multiple execs.  Call her user A.  User A's Outlook is configured with 5+ secondary mailboxes, she is set as delegate with owner permissions for all supported execs.  

Roughly 1-2 times per week, when she creates a calendar item/meeting invite in her calendar, the meeting invitation goes out as "from user A sent of behalf of user B."   When this happens, user B (one of the execs) gets all the meeting request responses and user B's calendar is not updated properly -- never gets added to the meeting even though user B was a recipient/invitee.  

I have applied Windows updates, created new Outlook profiles, no go.  It only happens 1-2 times per week, a small percentage of the time.  user A swears she is creating the invitation/calendar item from her calendar.  Any ideas are much appreciated.

There is no option to add from: field when creating calendar items.  I only see that for message items.

I am refering to if they foward and existing appointment.  Does this only occur with new appointments that have not been fowarded?

It occurs when creating new appointments in her calendar.  For some reason, every once in a while, the meeting invitation will go out from UserA (her) on behalf of UserB (one of the execs she supports even if she creates the appointment/meeting from her calendar.    I'm pretty certain it is a client-level issue but it tough to figure out since we cannot replicate it.

Have you deleted and re-receated the outlook profile on the local machine?

Although I had tried this before, after creating another Outlook profile the problem seems to have gone away after two weeks of use.  JDCUSAF deserved some credit for the suggestion.
