With recent versions of nslcd, neither of the filters are needed and
serve only to slow down lookups. All that is needed is:

uid nslcd
gid nslcd
uri ldap://your.f.q.d.n
base dc=foo,dc=bar
map passwd uid samAccountName
map passwd homeDirectory unixHomeDirectory
sasl_mech GSSAPI
sasl_realm SOME.REALM
krb5_ccname /tmp/nslcd.tkt

hth to speed things up a little.
