It times out after a minute:

[root at cc-popmap7 ~]# time doveadm director map
doveadm(root): Error: User listing returned failure
doveadm(root): Error: user listing failed

real    1m0.028s
user    0m0.088s
sys     0m0.072s

Jul 15 13:53:25 cc-popmap7 dovecot: auth: Error: getpwent() failed: No such file or directory

userdb passwd. Our LDAP directory might not be optimally configured. The group that administers it only really cares about binds, iteration can be rather slow:

[root at cc-popmap7 ~]# time getent passwd | wc -l 

real    8m0.120s
user    0m2.507s
sys     0m1.093s

That comes out to just over 100 entries a second.
