After installing Samba (3.0.4) & Winbind on a SLES9 server , configuring
them and register my server into the windows domain (wtih net join command)
... everything seems working fine . "getent group" "getent passwd" "wbinfo
-m" "wbinfo -u" "wbinfo -g" ... OK OK OK

So ... I put the following lines into the "/etc/nsswitch.conf" :

passwd: files winbind
shadow: files winbind
group:  files winbind

An after that ... connections (local console or remote telnet-ssh) are very
very very slow ... (around 40 minutes) ... but it works ! 

After applying the SLES9 SP1 (upgrading to samba 3.0.9) it seems to be a
little better ! Around 2-4 minutes for a connection ...
If	I stop the winbind service
	if I put the following lines in the "nsswitch.conf"

	passwd: compat
	group:  compat

every connection is instanaeous  ...
Any help would be very appreciated ?
