[Samba] Question regarding user or group quantity limits

Anyone know what the max # of domain users or groups samba will
effectively support?

I'm running samba v3.0.0RC2, and authenticating it against an ADS
server, and the domain has a massive number of users and groups (14000+
and 4000+), when I run a 'getent group'   winbindd seems to die on me.
'getent passwd' doesn't seem to show all users, either.

Any ideas?  OS is SuSE enterprise 8.0.
