[Samba] winbind hang

I'm having an odd problem with winbind.

I just installed Samba 3.0.2 pre1 on a Solaris 9 server.
smbd/nmbd/winbindd all start ok.
But when it first starts, if I try "wbinfo -u", it hangs. As does "getent
passwd". This will continue for the first couple hours after a restart. Then,
things will suddenly start to work, and be fine for the rest of the time. Until I
have to restart it again.

Any thoughts?
This also occured with Samba 3.0.1

I would greatly appreciate any ideas on what's causing this.
