Group Policy Preferences Fail when Authenticated Users is removed.

Creating a mapped drive in GPP for a GPO linked at the domain level works fine when Security Filtering is set to Authenticated users.

The drive mapping fails when we remove Authenticated Users and replace with a single user account. The account is added and checked to make sure it has read and apply rights.

In order to get the drive to map, we have to add the computer account to the security filtering as well.

Why must we add the computer account to security filtering when we want the drive mapped to the user no matter the machine to which they log on?
