Intermittent file permission problems

I have a very strange problem.  We are running a Windows 2003 network with several servers, including 2 DCs and 2 Terminal servers among others.  We have a user with all admin rights, lets say 'superuser'.  When we login to one of the terminal servers, sometimes superuser can access all the folders including admin only folders.  Other times when we login we get access denied errors when trying to access the same folders.  If we login to other servers or workstations, the permissions always work.  I've check the event logs on all relevant servers and see nothing matching up with this problem.  Its very frustrating.  I've even reset the permissions on several of the admin only folders and nothing has helped.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Already have done that, even though I don't see how that would cause it to be intermittent.

Any ideas anyone?  I've been pulling my hair out for a week on this one.  If it was constant I could probably figure it out.  But since it only happens about 50% of the time I log in as that user, the got me totally baffled.  Its just that one user and the one server.
