User -> John Smith (Added to the group Sales Team)
Group -> Sales Team (In the address book)
Database ACL -> (Person Group) Sales Team (Assigened the Role = Sales)

So when Jonh Smith logs in to the database - he is seen as a user in the Group Sales Team, so he is assigned the role of Sales - I check this with a @UserRole Field

I removed John Smith From the group Sales Team - The Address book has been replicated and the names.nsf has been refreshed and indexs rebuilt.  

When John Smith logs in now, he is still in the Sales role even though his name is not to be found in any group and the ACL everybody has no access

Is this db local or on server ?

Also resave the acl by changing something and reverting it back. And ask John smith to re-login.

Make sure that John Smith is not in a subgroup of any of the groups or listed as an individual entry in the ACL.

The server may need some time (worst case: days) until modifications of a group get recognized.
I have forced a view refresh on a development server in the past to overcome this by
- restarting the server
- save a fake modification in the view "($ServerAccess)"
You could alse try to hit Shift + F9 in that view (you know about the shift + control trick to open hidden views?) to refresh it. That should disgard the views index and force a viewrefresh. While you're waiting... an additional dbcache flush on the server console might give it just that additional tough.
