Samba has simply never been designed or tested for use in the presence
of subdomains, nor for that number of objects.
We hope to add subdomain support, and I have done some work towards
that, but it is as you have noticed, unfinished.
We would also like to improve Samba to scale up, and to support more
diverse domain structures, but it isn't a small task.
