I compiled the latest 1.9.2 source release on a test RHEL6 system,
and it does indeed have a dramatic performance improvement:
# time getent group members
1.8.0 -- 1m29.589s
1.9.2 -- 0m5.968s
# time getent group students
1.8.0 -- 0m44.735s
1.9.2 -- 0m4.543s
# time id -a cpcrudo
1.8.0 -- 2m14.719s
1.9.2 -- 0m12.508s
I assume you ran these with a cold cache?
The other feature of the 1.9.x series is a new in-memory cache which
should return results pretty much instantly.
