Hard indeed. I'm running a small script that first lists all shares available
to an user (smbclient -L), and then uses smbclient again but to connect to each share and run
"dir".  I run this script once for each user I have (about 300). The load on
the ldap machine, a PII-300 128Mb soars to 32 and stays there.

Samba is running on another machine, while openldap 2.0.25 is
on this PII-300. Load on the samba machine is between 1.5 and 2.5 most of the time
during this test. (the samba machine is a celeron 500).
