Hello list!

I'm facing some problems with the group and userlistings on a (quite) 
slow machine in a huge AD Domain.
There are ~10000 users and ~4000 groups and several trust-relationships 
accross europe.
I often need several tries to receive the listing.
I found, that the problem is the 30-seconds-timeout in 
nsswitch/wb_common.c - read_sock(). Perhaps this could be handled more 

I tried out samba 3.0.10 - 3.0.13.
