A user's supplementary groups as specified by /etc/group are set
at login so if you modify /etc/group those changes won't really
take effect until the next login.
Does the "id" program list you as being a member of that group?
uid=500(millert) gid=500(millert) groups=10(wheel),500(millert)
If it does I would expect sudo to be treat you as a member of that
group as well.
