I can only suggest to make the problem as simple as you possibly can.
Because the details here don't follow what is expected.  Make things
as simple as possible.  Double check all of the normal things in case
the normal things have become broken.  Question the fundamentals.

Check that $HOME is correct and exported.  Check that $USER is
correct.  Try forcing the issue with:

  emacs -u $USER

What you are reporting doesn't make sense and most of us would say
that "it can't happen".  Since you say it IS happening to you then it
must be that something is actively breaking it in your environment.
You will have to dig into it and figure it out.  This isn't a
systematic bug.  It isn't reproducible by others.  It must be
something specific to your environment.  Which, unfortunately for you,
means that you are the only one who can debug it because it is your
system that is broken and none of us are you.

Good luck!
