Do you ever need to list _all_ the groups? If not then set:
 winbind enum groups = No
and then query the groups singly:
getent group name.of.group

Also, you could cache them. I'm not sure but nscd may work with winbind.

Yes, in fact the tool I'm  writing NEEDS all groups from AD, so, that's not going to work. And as the script doesn't know the groups ahead of time.....

It's weird, I'll grab a winbind -i d 10 file when I get a minute. Something is looping around during the group call...

Thanks for your time.
