I have two system with ArchLinux, on both, if I run gpasswd -a user group, I have to logout/login to make changes take effect. On debian this behavior is not reproducible, changes take immediately effect after using gpasswd. I have a minimal systems with Openbox only, may be some configuration failure?

Steps to reproduce:
Run: gpasswd -a user group; groups user
This task depends upon

this isn't a bug. I ever did logout/login to make the command take effect in all linux systems I used
