exchange resource calendar not updating from a single client computer

The situation is that when the user is logged onto a particular client PC, and adds entries to a shared resource calendar (by directly adding an appointment to the calendar), the entries to do propagate to the calendar itself (if logged in) or, as a result, to to the other users version of the shared calendar. To note is that from this PC with the same user logged in, is that other resource calendars do not have the same issue. Also, if the user is logged into another computer, the same issue does not occur for the particular calendar.

It may be the case that logging out of the PC may propagate the calendar.

Probally of no consequence, but the user is a roaming profile and the PC utilises Offline files.
