External Service Policy has problems enforcing them when two assigned policies have similar service names, both starting with the same characters sequence, up to a space.  Apparently the policy truncates the name up to the first space, throwing away anything after.  This causes a second policy not being applied if a previous policy has a similar starting name.

Workaround: don't use spaces in the External Service Policy name.
