Is there a way in Exchange 2007 SP1 for Dynamic Distribution Lists to show up bold in the GAL?

I've looked around and it doesn't seem like anyone else has this issue, so I'd thought I'd ask.

I've set up a dynamic distribution group through the EMC in Exchange 2007 SP1.  Configuring the group was simple enough, however when I browse the GAL, it's not listed in bold as the regular distribution groups are.  Is there a way to change this?  

All our users are on Outlook 2007.  I've tried downloading the address book and disabling cached mode and get the same result, however browsing in OWA, the dynamic group will show in bold.  It may seem like a nit-picky request, but our users are used to seeing groups in bold, and I know I'm going to get calls about it not being in bold.

Thanks in advance.

they don't appear bold in the EMC, but should appear bold in the address finder in outlook when the try to lookup and select a group...

Otherwise, are you sure the other groups and this one are located in the same exchange server?

@ debuggerau:  Only 1 server in the environment.  Regular Dist groups show bold when browsing from the GAL, but the Dynamic ones for some reason do not.

@ Subsun, Thanks for the link.  I'm debating opening a support case with MS, but I'm swamped as it is to deal with something like this for the moment.  

For the moment I've removed all my Dynamic lists and replaced them with the plain old mail enabled dist lists since, as predicted, the end users are confuddeled by the mail enabled dist list showing bold and the dynamic ones not.  

Thanks for the replies.  I'll start another post if I get any type of detailed answer out of MS
