[gptalk] Custom adm template not blocked when GPO is blocked ?

I have a GPO for folder redirection that redirects the desktop and the
My Documents Folder.  I have a special adm template that redirects the
Favorites to the "redirected" My Documents folder.  This is all in the
same GPO.


I have set a certain group of people to not get the policy, by setting a
"Deny" Apply Group Policy setting.  


What has happened is that the Policy has been denied, HOWEVER the custom
adm part of the policy about the Favorites was still applied...


Why is that?  I must be missing something about how custom template
files are applied and policies, etc.




Another weird thing that I noticed and this may be a separate post, but
on some folders under the main share, where I have set exclusive use of
the folders to the users, I am able to access the My Documents folder
(where the favorites are being redirected), and other user's My
documents folders i can not access, which is what i would expect.


It appears that the users where the Favorites adm template was applied
first, those are the people whose My Documents folders i can access.  If
the My Documents and Desktop Redirections happened first, I can not
access those folders.


Very strange
