Is this the message you get?

Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile.

Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator.

Did you delete those user profiles from the Windows XP machine recently?

This error can happen if you have recently deleted that user profile from the Windows machine. You can try doing this https://support.microsoft.com/kb/947242, it says Windows Vista in the article but I remember doing the same thing on XP and Windows 7.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.
  2. Back up all data in the current user's profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location: %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\UserName
  3. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
  4. Locate the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
  5. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.

    Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem. The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

  6. Exit Registry Editor.
  7. Log off the system.
  8. Log on to the system again.

After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created.

EDIT:

For the error you mentioned in the comments you should check if the network path for the profile is available from that workstation and if the correct permission are applied to it.

Click on Detail, do you get this message when you click it "The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help.", it is possible that the server share for the profile isn't accessible by DNS, or that the users don't have rights to the share. What is you Domain Controller is it Ubuntu with SAMBA, what is the Ubuntu server you mentioned in the question? –  Alen Mar 20 '13 at 15:16
