I imagine the shared roster has as special member: @all@
And all the users you mention are in the virtual host where you
created that shared roster group.

Relogin in the server should be enough, as you expected.
So after step 4 the new user should see everybody else of the
virtualhost, as you got in step 3.

In step 4, try to use a popular desktop client (Psi, Gajim, Tkabber, ...).

Maybe your problem is similar to the one described today by Florian
Hackenberger in the message: [ejabberd] Shared Roster
