Remind me too much of https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11852 
which was fixed after 4.2.10 but before 4.2.14 - so you shouldn't be 
impacted actually, but it might be worth to double check it.
Check in your winbindd debug log for the following:

"Current tickets expire in 36000 seconds (at <timestamp>, time is now 

If it states anything negative (e.g. "Current ticket expire in 
-1474558139 seconds") you're hitting the above mentioned bug which 
results in a super slow wbinfo (because it has to kinit for every user 
you want to list).

Just my 2 cents!
