do regular users have access to \\ajes-fs03\share\screensaver_test.scr?
also when you run a gpresult on machine under user account who should have GPO applied can you see the GPO as applied?

For Windows 7 and newer: Screensaver Name: Bubbles.scr
For Windows XP and older: Logon.scr

Make sure the settings are in a GPO that is USER oriented and connected to your OU tree for users.

You can use WMI filtering to delimit a GPO for Windows 7+ and one for XP-: http://t.co/9fMQv8Axr8
