According to ME2465996 the cause is because the Search Query Logging thread reuses expired credentials.

A hotfix is available at ME2459257.
According to EV100247 (SharePoint 2010: Unable to start the User profile synchronization service), this can be caused by the fact that the authentication for security token service in IIS had "Forms" and "ASP.NET impersonation" enabled. This is preventing the userís identity to be passed to the security token service and the token service is unable to generate tokens properly. See the article for the suggested resolution.
From a Microsoft support forum: "I found that the root of the issue was (in my case) the 'NETWORK SERVICE' account did not have Launch and Activation Permissions for the IIS WAMREG admin service DCOM object. And if you try to add those permissions for that account on that DCOM object, the options are grayed out. I followed EV100177 and all my errors went away."
See EV100178 for some information about this event.
The EV100179 discussion thread (Sharepoint foundation 2010 with FBA) contains some solutions for this problem (the users were able to fix the errors).
