I set the wallpaper in the same gpo:

This popup appears each time Administrator starts the GPO editor:

Clicking OK gives 'Access is denied'. Same error whether I have run 
samba-tool ntacl sysvolreset or not. The GPO is created however.

1. Ordinary users can read anything in the sysvol share
2. The wallpaper GPO is ignored both for W7 Administrator and for W7 users.

note: The wallpaper GPO doesn't work on XP either but I don't think it 
was implemented then.
