Ok, that's more or less what I expected...

...and this too. It explains the problem at least partially.
But... there's something weird here: While this is both time the same
DOMAIN\user combination, it has two different SIDs. I never, ever saw
that. It looks broken to me, but I could be missing something.

Not really something which would help you, I guess.
It might be a deliberate corporate setting, or a mistake when setting up
your group memberships. Windows doesn't care. A group may be used as
owner and a user may be used as group, it's all the same to Windows.
However, the differnet SIDs for the same domain\user looks really
strange. I can't explain that, sorry. I'd suggest to ask the admins,
maybe somebody can explain, and, hopefully, you can share the info :}
