winbind / nss_winbind with Solaris with large amout of uses/groups

hi all !
I have compiled Samba 2.2.2 for Solaris 7 ( Solaris 8 also ) but found out
that the "nss_winbind" support
is available in source-code, but not after compilation.
The neccessary entries in the Makefile after "configre" are missing !!
I have got it to run and it works fine with a small amout of groups.
But deploying this samba/winbind version to a Windows network with more than
3000 user and
more than 200 groups gives following result:
"getent passwd" works fin, also adding "winbind" to /etc/nsswitch.conf and
looking through the
windows-users owned files is ok !
"getent group" takes about 20 sek, than the first group "Domain Admins" is
printed out, but NO OTHER
groups/information is seen. ( no other 199 groups are listed)
I have notices that the next group will be "Domain User" with this 3000
I have noticed also that there are performance considurations/discussions
( bringing winbind to Debug Level 4 or above shows a huge amout of
"rpc_parsing" ... )
Do you have any idea to bring this under control (, Tim ) ?
Thank you for every help
