We have a large AD deployment as well.  I hope that someone in the
developer group can speak to this with authority, but I theorize that
there is a timeout implemented in a generalized query that broad.
Remember, you are asking for a listing of ALL groups in your AD
controller.  I can't even get Active Directory Users and Computers nor
Powershell commands to output every group.

If you are able to get a listing of a specific group:
"getent group specificgrpname"
Then winbind is working properly.

Why are you wanting that amount of output?  There may be other commands
(net) that can get you the info you want.
