[Samba] Long Pause the First Time I Do an 'ls' on Linux.

We have a lot of users on our AD domain, and the more we add the longer
it takes to get a directory listing on my Linux servers. When I do 'ls
-l' it might take 20 seconds before the listing starts. However, if I
immediately do 'ls -l' again, it comes up quickly. I assume this is
because samba/winbind is polling the AD domain controller on the first
attempt. Is there any way to speed this up?
