Winbindd consuming large amounts of CPU after adding/removing ACEs on share-level permissions

Hi folks,

We have seen a case or two recently where when someone added or
removed ACEs on share-level permissions, winbindd started consuming
10% of the CPU on one core.

Has anyone seen this?

Samba 3.6.12+ (a few patches from later versions.)
