[Samba] Creating domain list takes too long

I have seen this happen on a domain without a Samba server on the 
network. The only way I found to skip this step is Ctrl+Alt+Del and they 
are listed. I've just put it down to one of those quirks of Microsoft 
Windows but its definatly not a Samba issue.

The Windows clients can join the domain without any problem, however,  a message saying "Please wait while the domain list is created" shows up right after the first time after the clients join the domain and reboot. This procedure of creating the domain list takes a very very long time.  I wonder if  there is a way to reduce it.
