Active Directory User Account Permissions Mysteriously Reset

I am having trouble getting permissions set in Active Directory to "Set".  I am setting a permission for a user account to have the "Send As" permission.  what happens is I set the permission and test that it works.  some time later (about an hour or so) I'll get a call that the user cannot on behalf again.  I check the permissions and the one I created has mysteriously disappeared!  this also happens if I use the inherit permissions tickbox, I go back and the tick is removed and the permissions are gone!  p

Please help as this is driving me round the twist.

It's most likely those users are in protected groups.  Once an hour the DC will compare ACLs on all objects for those objects in admin groups with what is in AdminSDHolder container, if they are different it resets the permission on those objects to what is set on the AdminSDHolder object.
