User settings lost


I have a user who sets up the Vibe plug in but at several times during the week these settings disappear. Same applies to settings for Filr. The server info and password get removed. Now the user has a local profile which in theory should remember these settings. We have round about 200 users with the same setup who don't loose the settings. I've been through the log and find this error:

The strange thing is how it works one day but not the other.

Has anyone experienced these issues?
