I've noticed that with "files ldap" in nsswitch.conf, if I try to run "top" and the ldap server is not available, it takes about a minute to start showing information, whereas normally it's instantaneous.

The problem seems to be the mapping of uid numbers to usernames (the -u options prevents this). The man page says:

"Normally, top will read as much of the file "/etc/passwd" as is necessary to map all the user id numbers it encounters into login names"

So my question is, top must be finding a uid number that it can't match in /etc/passwd, then going on to search ldap. How can this be?
