[Samba] GPO Security Filtering "Access Denied"

Hi list,

Very strange problem here on Samba 4.5.2 DCs. We have set up some GPOs 
and they seem to work fine, however we need to apply some Security 
Filtering to a couple of them.

We can add groups and users until we reach 6 groups/users/computers in 
the list box in GPO management. As soon as we try to add a 7th entry, 
GPO Management throws an "Access Denied" error. Even odder is that 
sometimes if we do this, then delete a previous entry from the list, the 
most recent one will magically appear.

We are managing AD using RSAT tools on Windows 7.

Has anyone else come across this problem?
