User entry not regrouped based on Global Security Profile when using 'Fill Down' to change profile.

Describe the loss of functionality:
When User's Global Security Profile is updated using the 'Fill down' option, User will not be regrouped under the updated Profile group even upon Saving. So, after the update, User with updated Profile say 'Resource Manager' will still appear under Profile group 'View Global Data'.

1. Login & Navigate to Administer, User Access, Users.
2. Group by 'Global Security Profile'.
3. Update User U1 in Profile 'View' to 'Resource Manager' using 'Fill Down'.
4. Save.

After step 3, U1's Global Security Profile reflects 'Resource Manager' but U1is still grouped under 'View' Profile. Saving in Step 4 will not regroup U1 under new Profile either.

If U1 is updated using the data selector / Drop down in the 'Global Security Profile' column, then immediately after choosing 'Resource manager', U1 gets regrouped under New Profile. Saving would save the changes

Business Impact
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot regroup the users with correct Profile when using Global Security Profile as grouping.
