Yes, certainly. Right now I'm in the process of getting the enumeration
functions in winbind trunk/ right. The main problem is that for a domain
everything is being read in a big chunk. Although for security=ads we're using
paged searches, the end result the user sees is the one big chunk per domain.
This needs to and will change, although that is quite an intrusive change that
will probably not come for 3.0.15. In the meantime you could just increase the
timeout. Can you do that yourself, or do you want patched binaries?
