Sharepoint - Active directory group

I have an active directory group.  When use this group with SharePoint authentication some strange behavior is happening.   When I remove user from the group, the user can still authenticate for an hour.  If I run gpupdate on the domain controller,  then the user would lose access immediately.    It seems that there some caching involved.

This is expected behavior - Actice Directory Group Policy updates are not instantly propagated, there is a refresh setting.  The alternative is to run GPUpdate to perform an immediate update.
This article explains how to adjust the update interval if you so desire, though there typically should'nt be to much need -
