New user doesn't show up in selection dialog

I created a new user using the Register User tool and the name appeared in the address book. However, when I went to add it to an access group, the new user did not appear in the selection dialog. If I create a new person document the user does appear in the dialog. Do you have any ideas why? I am using Notes version is 4.6a.
I am assuming that the first operation (Register User tool) correctly added a person document to the address book. My guess is that what you saw was simply a caching delay; the view that is used by the selection box had not updated to include the new person. If you see this behavior again, try pressing CTRL+SHIFT+F9 while the address book is open. This will update all the views. Then try the selection dialog again. If this does not work, write back.
