Terminal server default printer

We have a 2008 Terminal server the whole office uses. We have network printers in most of the rooms. I'm not sure when it started but the some of the users are telling me some mornings their default printer on the terminal server has changed. Of course when I go out there and log them off and back on the default printer stays. If it was a login script it would happen every time they login and off. Anyone have any ideas what might cause that.

do you have redirected printers enabled?
when logging into the TS, you can specify if user's local printers are connected via the TS session, and if these take over as the default printer.

That would be my first guess.
