Has nothing to do with Windows. Generally the membership of a user in=20
groups is evaluated only once when the connection to the fileserver gets =

established. A new token enforces a new connection. So whenever you add=20
some one to a group or remove some one from a group that has an effect=20
only after the user has reauthenticated unless he didn't have any=20
connection to the fileserver before.
