First, that's not Samba directly, that is nss_ldap.  Some bright bit of
code is doing 'getent passwd' or the equivalent.   Now, this may be
triggered by Samba, and if your LDAP server is internally consistent
(all the things Samba cares about are in ldap), then you should try
setting 'ldapsam:trusted = yes' in your smb.conf.  This is meant to be
better with current Samba3 over 3.0.11, but that version does include an
older version of the code.
