Well, can you provide a log level 10 of such attempt? And put it in bugzilla? 
That would help in getting this fixed. 
Not that i would support it, its a leak imo. 

And its confusing for others since it only works for windows server as "Member" and not computers, and you can only add 10 by default. 

For computers, you still need to 
 Assign rights to the user/group using the Default Domain Group policy. 
 Delegate rights to user using Active Directory Users and Computers.

But im not here for starting a discussion... 

So have a nice weekend everybody, im out early today.
