Thank you for your report. I can confirm that the issue kind of 
"resolves" itself after a while (the while can be as long as several 
weeks which is annoying when you install a common base of software 
through GPO).

It seems like one (or several) of the DCs are misconfigured but checking 
throught ldapcmp returns no difference, and ntacl sysvolreset on all DC 
doesn't solve it (by the way it does not seem to adjust unix ACLs, if I 
setfacl -bR on Policies I never get ACLs back)

Clicking on the link in the events viewer (which *never* fails) opens it 
as the logged in user, that's why I'm convinced the issue is tied to 
machine accounts handling
