yes, me ^_^

i quit nscd services in ALL my servers at charge. I use LDAP too, for several 
services (samba, mail, dns, proxy, etc) and i prefer to install slave ldap 
servers in all my network instead of depend on nscd. nscd was always a pain 
to use, for example, some users change their password in samba, and some 
services continue to use the old password cached in nscd. i change some users 
from an ldap group to another, to give permissions to some things (samba 
shares, mail properties or proxy access rights) but the stupid nscd dont 
refresh the changes (i need to restart the nscd service) 

i prefer slave ldap servers, and use systems that are ldap aware.
