after you found out about that, do you vaguely remember where you reported that
thing in bugzilla?

Apart from that winbind enum users/groups only be used for testing purposes.
*Any* productive setup should have turned that parameter off (which is the
default). Winbind can cope with domains which contain thousands and millions of
users without a problem. Any nss module which would allow group or user
enumerations would doom itself and the DCs, too.
