NSCD conflicts with Winbind's own caching and will cause you not to be able to 
authenticate randomly/odd credential dropping/etc, even with new releases of 
Samba and GLibC.

Here's the documentation directly from the Samba project:

The name service caching daemon (nscd) is a primary cause of difficulties with 
name resolution, particularly where winbind is used. Winbind does its own 
caching, thus nscd causes double caching which can lead to peculiar problems 
during debugging. As a rule, it is a good idea to turn off the name service 
caching daemon.
