sql 2005 server showing old AD account name

I have a microsoft server 2003 network with 8 servers. 2 servers running A/D, 3rd server running sql 2005. Sql server 2005 is using windows authentication for access to databases (mostly through group membership). Last month we had a girl in the office get married. When she returned to work we renamed her A/D account from domain\madien name to domain\married name. Account rename went fine, all Exchnage modifications went fine. Appears that all servers recognize the new domain\married name account except the SQL server. We are running a canned accounting system on the SQL server, all security changes in the accounting package were completed & she can run the application without problems. The problem that I am still having is that when I examine the SQL activity monitor, it shows her user as domain\madien name. Does anyone know why? The odd part is that we went through this process about 2 months ago for another girl who got married & she appears in the activity monitor with her new account name. The only difference between the 2 may be a server restart.
