GPO not being applied

I'm trying to use a GPO to log off disconnected RDS/TS-users. However I cannot get it to work. I have created a GPO and linked it to the OU that contains the test user object. Further on, the test user has been added to the "Security Filtering" box for the GPO.

Having ran gpupdate /force and also restarted the RDS/TS-server several times I still cannot see any hint of the GPO being applied when doing an RSoP on the test user. It is a very simple setup with only a few GPOs (as far as I can see only the default ones).

Copy&Paste from the Setteing-tab of GPO in question:
User Configuration (Enabled)
Administrative Templates
Policy definitions (ADMX files) retrieved from the local machine.Windows Components/Remote Desktop Services/Remote Desktop Session Host/Session Time Limits
Policy Setting Comment
Set time limit for disconnected sessions Enabled  
End a disconnected session 1 minute

You can run gpresult on the computer to see what policies are coming down to it. You may find conflicting policies. Depending on the computer OS you may have to use the /r switch.

Having ran gpresult I saw:
"The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out
    Log Off Disconnected Grodan-users Policy
        Filtering:  Not Applied (Empty)"

I also saw that the last time the group policy was applied was hours ago, so I ran gpupdate /force logged in as the test user and it worked perfectly.
