I want to thanks for improvements in winbindd. 3.0.25 is much faster.
Now I can log in my machine very fast.

I noted however that groups commands did not improve that much.
I used tcpdump to log ldap activity. The steps:
- winbind ask user groups (correct)
- winbind check groups updates (correct)
- winbind check all users in first user groups (asking for objectSid,
sAMAccountName, sAMAccountType and UserPrincipalName)... quite slow,
this query is IMHO not necessary and require more than 16.000 network
