[Samba] winbind performance in large domains

what are your experiences using winbind in large domains, say with some 
10,000 users?

I have set up a test box (celeron 1000, 512 mb ram, suse 8.1) and see a 
cpu usage of 100% for some seconds after each login, similar times for 
doing a "ls -l" or "ps -A". On the other hand, "ls -n" does need almost 
no time, obviously because it does not do any uid-to-username resolution.
