It certainly could cause both: I would suspect walk over the list - both
in select and in the linked list fairly often, but given the alternative
why not try it?

Also, the faster we can process the actual logon requests, the better
this will handle.  Have an AD DC very close to your Samba server, and
ensure it uses it.
