I don't think this will fix OP's problem.
rhkramer, you don't need to reboot your machine, but you need to
re-login in order to start a session with your new set of groups.
If you do 'su $USER' on the terminal then this should start a session
with the new groups _in this session only_.
If you need the change globally (e.g. for applications you start from
the GUI) then you will have to logout and login again.
