I am also hit by the slow AD issue; so thanks for the solution.
mkpasswd takes an hour and mkgroup takes longer -- is there anything I can
suggest to our administrators that would help make this time less?
We have not had previous problems reported with our AD being slow.

Thanks a lot. I added this to the FAQ in CVS with just the changes
necessary to make it a FAQ entry. If somebody has to add something,
feel free to send text.
