Why does rights come into effect after logging off & on.

Windows 2000 fileshare SP4
Client on XP and Win2K
I have a test file share on a Win2K server. Very standard and rights to this folder are goverened by a group membership and the group is given rights to the folder.
Now, if I add my AD account to the group, nothing happens or at least doesn't happen for a very very long time.
The crux of the matter is that I've found that if I logoff and back on the effects on being a member of this group are immediate! Also, if I add my user account to the folder security rights, the effects are immediate. It's only when adding / removing the same account to the filesecurity group that I have this lag.
Does anyone know why this is? Replication between DC's on same site occurs every 20 mins. I've performed Secedit / GPupdates on all policies. I've forced replication to see if that is the issue. No replication issues.
This is driving me nuts hence the points.
