Active Directory User account not keeping Security list

I have an Active Directory user account in a Windows 2003 domain that does not seem to keep the entries specified in the 'Security' tab for the account.  After about 15-30 minutes the security list keeps reverting back to an old list of entries.  I have even selected the 'Default' button to 'Replace all permissions entries with default settings' but it still reverts back to an old list after a period of time.  Any idea what's going on?  Thanks.

Was that account ever a member of a built-in group such as domain admins or account operators
Full list of those groups here:
That also explains adminsdholder which is what you may be dealing with.   Another good entry on the subject is on the Microsoft DS team blog

Yes, the  account is part of the domain admins group. I removed from that group.  Let's see what happens.
Mike KlineCommented:
because it was part of the group before it will still happen to this account.
