There have been comments regarding a problem of synchronizing AD and Sharepoint groups ("Audience Targeting and User Profiles in MOSS 2007") . Tim O finally figured the solution and here's his description:
"If experiencing problems seeing updates to the AD groups, it's possible the timer service has stopped and failed to restart. A few people at MS are aware of this problem. In Central Administration for SharePoint, select 'Operations', then 'Timer Job Status' to view the most recent timer job activity. Several jobs are visible here and some run infrequently.
On your SP server, in the services section, restart the following service:
Windows Sharepoint Services timer."
Thanks Tim O for sharing!
