Hmm..this is interesting.  It seems that getent may fail if there are a 
large number of users in a domain group.

[root at cartier ~]# getent group "Domain Users"
domain users:x:15000:

All of my domain users are in the Domain Users group...but if I do:

[root at cartier ~]# getent group "Domain Admins"

I get a list of the proper users in that group.  Obviously displaying a 
list of 600+ users in the output under "Domain Users" would really make 
the output hard to read but I wonder if that is by design or if that is 
a problem...
