That is the issue which was introduced in CR7 release as a regression. Normally PS does check what type of User Directory it is connecting with, while checking in CR7 it is mistakenly(code change) looking for AD attributes instead of AD LDS. this is fixed in CR9 release.
This issue will be fixed in CR09 and 12.8 Policy Server version.
Additional Information:
DE326287/ DE335297 Policy Server identifies the ADLDS user store as Active Directory.
