Now you could fix that by making everyone's primary group some group 
that is defined for the purpose of making samba shut up, but then you'd 
run into this nice issue that using secondary groups in samba with an 
LDAP backend on recent patchlevels is broken.

As a more helpful note, how does using nscd affect your performance issues?
