[Samba] Samba 3.2.12 - troubels with winbind

i'am fighting against winbind since Samba 3.2.5

1.) Sometimes all Windows Maschines hangs couse winbind hangs.
2.) getent passwd is sometimes damned slow

Is that normal? Sometimes it needs 10 to 30 seconds to respond! Should i set winbind cache time higher than 300?

mitarbeiter:/# wbinfo -a PRUEFUNG+u.can%the_top_secret_password
plaintext password authentication succeeded
challenge/response password authentication succeeded

So now:
-> user logins for the first time: winbind hangs and saves it to the cache: the logon will take long.
-> the next login will go fast and winbind loads it from the cache
-> after 300 seconds, winbind fetches it again and refresh the cache: the login will takes long.

so why is winbind not refreshing the cache in the background and loads allways the cache? Would makes things faster.

Well how can i fix it, that winbind will not take so long? When i could not fix this issue, i can dig my own grave. Company Leaders does not make jokes :/

Would be nice if someone can help me :)

have a nice - not so hot - day :-)
