Yes, we have configured it with 5 seconds value. Moreover we start winbind with
the option "-n".
What we see is same some wbinfo -r requests gets in return the error message

Could not get groups for user xxx

And that no traffic is sent from the server to the AD server (and so, of course,
no answer).
The problem seems to be link to the behavior of "wbinfo -r", or rather
wbinfo_get_usergroups( in particular the  winbindd_request_response command)

Do you agree ?
