Exchange 2010 - Permission issues when adding/removing users from Security Groups

Exchange 2010 SP1 server, 2003 DC's. Exisiting Domain Admins have the 'Inherit Permissions...." unchecked - by design. Is it normal for the user account to NOT re-inherit permissions (ie getting that check-box re-checked) when being removed from the Domain Admin's group.
I have ensured AD had replicated between all domains, even waited 24 hours just in case, and I have to manually re-inherit permissions on the user-account in AD. Is that by design, or is there another problem?

Yes.
Even removing them from the group doesn't reinstate the inheritance - it will actually be removed again.
You need to clear a value on the user account called AdminCount on the account. Then reapply the inheritance.
