[Samba] winbind users get lost sometimes

I use samba and winbind under linux in a NT4 domain.
I've set pam to use winbind for authentication. Every NT domain user has
his home (/home/winnt/j.smith) and can login the machine.
It is going all ok but sometimes, I can't understand why, some users are
not recognized. If I try getent passwd I see theme but if I try to login
(or su) the user I receive the message that the user does not exist.
The problem appears randomly for 1 or 2 users of 100.
Is there a way to force a sync of the users, and why I see the user with
getent but I can't login that user?
Here is the global section of my smb.conf
workgroup = DOMINIO_NT
