Failed to set permissions - with Nintex Workflow SP2013 + SP1

In our environment we are using Nintex Workflow to set item permissions and later we want to remove some permissions. Since we updated Nintex to we have an issue.


Our regional settings are German (Austria) and the Language Settings -> Default Language is English.


If we want to remove permissions with the "set item permission" action the workflow errors.


Following statement we found in the logging files:


System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting.PersistenceException: Failed to set permissions ---> Nintex.Workflow.NWException: Failed to set permissions ---> System.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range.   


A workaround we found:

Set the regional settings to English (UK). No change at the language settings. Publish the nintex workflow (to get the new settings).

After that everything works fine. But this workaround is not good for us, because the users have to enter the english date format and also the number format is not "german like".


Our goal is to use German regional settings, but the language setting should be English.


Any ideas what cause the error? The error just happen by removing permissions. Setting permissions works fine!
