Group Policy Fails For One User

Recently I started noticing a very strange problem. user Group Policy was not applying for a single user. All other users got GPO just fine, but for one user GPO failed to apply. This manifested itself in a couple of interesting ways:
When you run gpresult under this user's account you get an error that this user does not have RSOP data.
If you use folder redirection via GPO, as I was, suddenly this user does not get folder redirection applied. The user's "My Documents" folder all of sudden is a local copy from %userprofile%, and it has nothing in it. If the user goes directly to the network-based documents folder the original documents are of course all there. Read more here.
