Are you sure about that? if you are, then this needs changing:


Near the bottom:

NSCD Problem Warning


Do not under any circumstances run nscd on any system on which winbindd 
is running.


You seem to be the only person complaining about this problem, you first 
reported this 'bug' approx 10 months ago and nobody has done anything 
about it, or complained about it since.

Why don't you try try turning off nscd like everybody else, or at least 
the user & group parts.
