Have seen profiles .000, .001, etc which means that the profile does not unload, though have not seen a temporary profile run into this situation.

Check the system for virus/user's access.

You should have an User hive cleanup service running that handles the unloading of profiles.

Look in the registry
HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist
You should see the user SIDS with .save you need to rename the current temp referenced entry to .old with the .save rename minus the .save when the user logs off, the next time the user logs in should get their original profile.

Unfortunately we are not using citrix pofile manager.  It is a roaming profile using Group Policy.

I am currently running virus scan on file server where roaming profile share is. Some of the user's SID in registry has .bak entries. I have cleared it now. I will let you know about the progress.

Also please let me know if you have any other ideas that could potentially helps me in resolving the issue.

Renaming the .bak in the current registry since the ntuser.dat file is ...

Are you also deleting the local profile copies from c:\users?

Double check that on the local system, not the server, the windows user profile service is running.
Check event log dealing with unable to unload message from user32

I have seen this many times and it is usually solved by removing the system from the domain and then rejoining it to the domain; so go from a domain to a local workgroup--reboot; then rejoin to the domain. In most instances that will solve the problem. It may also be that the roaming profile has become corrupted.

The issue is unlikely to be with domain credentials.

I did following yesterday,
Ran AV scan - no major virus threats. Just few warnings.
Rebooted the XenApp and profile share servers as they were not rebooted for 44 days.
Cleared affected users roaming profile, local profile (if exist) and renaming SID registry keys.
So far it has not happened again. But I am still observing it.

The issue comes up when during loggoff an issue prevents the profile from unloading cleanly. this entry remains within the system's registry when the user tries to login again the system starts incrementing the profile.
