I have recently upgraded samba4 to the latest GIT build.
I have run upgradeprovision according to upgrading-samba4.txt instructions.
All seems to be well, but when i try to access Group Policy Objects from 
gpmc utility on windows i get the following error message:

Group Policy Management
The permissions for this GPO in the SYSVOL folder are inconsistent with
those in Active Directory. It is recommended that these permissions be
consistent. To change the SYSVOL permissions to those in Active Directory,
click OK.

After OK'ing i can edit and modify the setting and i believe everything 
gets applied correctly. However when i re-select the same object sam 
error message appears.
What should be the permissions on sysvol directory? And where is he 
place where they are stored?

I did not see this behaviour in the previous build, befor running
