This is in Sharepoint 2007.

Suddenly, we've notice that our web service which sets permissions on items in a document library don't show the new permissions immediately. After a minimum of 30 mins, the items correctly show the custom permissions.

This was working about a month ago.

Thanks for your help!

Do you have more than one SP server in the farm? Sometimes they can get out of sync. Maybe try rebooting them all and see if that helps. I have also seen before where clearing out a file cache on them helps as well. If restarting doesn't fix it, let me know and I'll try to remember what files need to be deleted.
