[Samba] Samba authentication slow against PDC

Just an update on what the fix for this problem was.  It was an entry called
"username level" which in our smb.conf file was set to 8.  This caused the
samba server to query ldap 256 times per user which caused the CPU on our
PDC/LDAP server to peg.  After setting this entry to 0 everything is working
as it should.
