I see a similar behavior with the Debian 3.0.14a and 3.0.22 packages.
My guess is that you won't see this if you don't enumerate groups.

See http://samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba3-HOWTO/idmapper.html

If I understand winbind correctly, your setup is asking winbind to
refresh all of the groups, not just ask which groups the user may be a
member of.
