Yes, there was a problem, and maybe still is.

You are using separate containers for users and machines, because you 
probably search for them in the whole LDAP tree.

On systems with lots of machines and users this can lead to a bottleneck 
(searching for machines first in users, then in machines etc., instead 
of in machines only, and in users only if looking for users).
