Default Blackberry 7290 address book update problems

Please Login to Remove!

I have several users with a 7290 model with the following problem: user is trying to modify an entry of a contact in her/his PAB that does not belong in the global address book. Whenever the user want to save the changes, the user get the message:
"Address updated externally. Changes will be lost and the viewer closed"

I have seen a few workarounds for this specific problem, but to no avail...

Here's an overview of our setup:
BlackBerries 7290 and 7100 models
BES for GroupWise (both hofixes installed)
IT Policy pushed to users' BlackBerries
