User unable to login to RDP Farm after you re-enable them?

We had a strange issue. We had a user leave and since we knew when she was leaving i set the account to expire at a certain date. A couple days after she left they re hired her for some part time work so I set the radio button back to Never Expires.

The user called saying she couldn't log on to our RDP farm. After looking over everything we noticed she was in the correct group, she was getting emails on her phone (we use O365/EXO) and I even tried to disable and re-enable her account.

For giggles we reset her password and sure enough that worked. I don't know if its a bug in AD that if you set an account to expire and then change it back to never expire it doesn't really send the "All Clear" to all the systems or what. Such a strange issue.
