One possible reason is that with nscd running, processes that want to do 
passwd and group lookups will talk to nscd through a door file, rather 
than loading nss_ldap and/or nss_winbind into their process space.  If for 
some reason you have multiple versions of the same library on your system 
(libldap.so, for example), then you will have a world of pain if a single 
process inadvertently ends up with both versions loaded.  This can happen 
pretty easily if nss_ldap is compiled against one version of libldap (say, 
as a part of your system's packages) and samba is compiled against a 
different version.
