File Permission issues

I think either my desktops or servers are caching access denied for network shares, and when permissions are granted, its not rechecking.  heres a little setup of the type of issue im having:
(Windows enviroment, servers either 2003 or 2008R2, clients either XP or 7)

**setup:
file server name: FS01
FS01 is a member of domain: domain.local
FS01 has a file share named: NetFolder (share permission is everyone full, access based on NTFS permissions)

then i have a user named USR1 on a workstation named WS01, also in domain.local
then i have a user named USR2 on a workstation named WS02, also in domain.local

**Scenerio:
neither USR1 or USR2 have permissions to the NetFolder
USR1 tries to access \\FS01\NetFolder and gets an Access Denied error (correct)
USR2 does nothing
As admin: i go to server and grant both USR1 and USR2 full permissions to the NetFolder
USR2 (who has not tried to access share before) has no problems accessing \\FS01\NetFolder
USR1 however, can not access \\FS01\NetFolder; even though "effective Permissions" shows full access.  
Odd twist here: USR1 is able to access the NetShare through a diffrent name:  \\FS01.domain.local\NetFolder


Any ideas here?  and let me know if this off the top of head example made any sence.  I know sometimes odd permission error can happen when offline content is avaliable, I get same issue with allow offline content enabled or not.  Also, when i run SystemInternals ProcessMonitor on the file server, one a user that gets the access dennied error when it should be good, there is no audit from the monitor making me thing the client is cacheing the denied and not even making an attempt to access the files.

thanks,
-steven

Hmmm...
I would check (on SERVER side) under shared folder Permissions --> Share tab --> Advanced sharing --> Cache, if maybe caching is set to PERFORMANCE mode, which means, files are cached to client, regardless of whether client did or did not request caching.
Turn this option OFF, either by selecting "Cache only files and folders, which client marks for caching", or "Do not allow caching of this resource".

Wait some 20 minutes for some fancy domain refresh happens, and try again.

performace is not checked.  I have the same issues no matter what is checked on this screen.  I have tried both "Cache only files and folders, which client marks for caching", and "Do not allow caching of this resource".

Sorry for slow response.

At first i did not think it was a caching problem.  But after rebots on both the client and server after doing the cacheing change, it started to work.  assuming cache was the issue.
