This parameter did not appear in my smb.conf, so it was unrelated. The
real reason was that I forgot to add indexes to the openldap
configuration, so on large groups, slapd was too slow and winbind
timed out. With Samba/winbind 3.0.23c, the error has changed by the
way, this version gives a NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT error.
