Thanks for all the suggestions. I managed to get the crank arm removed using pierrox's method of spraying penetrating oil (in my case PB blaster) into the crank/axle interface after heating only the outside of the crank arm with a propane torch using jimT's suggestion.

Then after more hammering using the profile tool, the crank finally came off. I think one of the previous methods allowed the crank to break its grip.

It's strange, but I don't see any rust on the axle where it had mated with the crank. It was just very very tight. I am going to be changing arms and lubricating the axle with anti-seize so hopefully I won't see this problem again.
