[Samba] Winbindd won't see new accounts until restarted

I have w2k server with AD and Debian mailserver with Samba 3.0.7. Userdatabase
is on w2k server and samba/winbind is configured to use ADS security.

When I add new accounts to w2k server, getent passwd won't show new accounts
until winbindd is restarted.

Now I have /etc/init.d/winbind restart in crontab for every 5 mins, which I
think is not nice way to do it.

Question is, how I get winbind to see new users (and passwords) without
restarting it?
