I was puzzled why on my development server the memberships web parts never showed the sites that my test users were members of. After much searching and tinkering I found that I needed to run a full profile import and a full search crawl. It could be that only one was required - but I cannot verify it. The profile import does say that it updates memberships, but even after that it didnt add the memberships - only after I performed a full search crawl that it started working.
