just using time, on an nfs mounted home, 112 entries, i get:
no nscd: from 0.090s to 0.100s
ncsd first time: ~0.1s
nscd cached: ~0.05 to 0.06s
so it's not really that slow anymore, even without nscd. plus i also
nss_ldap configured on the home dialup server which isn't giving me
trouble with sendmail.
