Yes, could open, read, edit, and save that file.

No, but I'm testing from clients with 'gpupdate /force' in powershell,
and not logon time.

Just sysvolreset was all that was needed, if it was corrupt then
changing the perms shouldn't matter.

Not a network ready issue (testing with up and running systems
manually running gpupdate).

Just one Windows 10 Pro 20H2 (QEMU/KVM) system. There's a site-to-site
vpn between my network and the target network (wireguard on OpenBSD)
which works quite well; can easily join systems to the domain, read
and write files, print etc.
Not using folder redirection, offline files, or roaming profiles.
Testing being done with very minimal GPO's - Chrome home page, no autorun, etc.
