[Samba] winbind on Solaris

Does anyone have winbind running on a Solaris 8 server in a large domain (5000+ users)?  

I have winbind running but the problem I'm having is that our Domain is so large that it takes an extremely long time to enumerate users and groups.  I've turned off enum users and groups in the smb.conf file but I'm still having problems on the Unix side when performing a directory listing on files created with users in the winbind uid and gid range.  The listing just seems to hang...I've never actually waited long enough to see if it will return.  

Does anyone know a workaround to this problem?  Is this normal?  Should the winbindd_cache.tbd be taking care of this problem?

Do I really need the enum flags set in smb.conf?  What does this do?

Finally, is there anyway to populate the winbindd_idmap.tdb manually so that you could map Domain accounts to current Unix accounts (i.e. users.map)?  Currently, we are leaving the existing Unix accounts in place while all new accounts only get created in Windows.  We'd like to transition the existing accounts over so that they are managed through Windows.

Thank you.
