Before using libapache2-mod-auth-ntlm-winbind, we gave AuthenNTLM a try
and got into situations, where the Perl module wouldn't release the lock
properly or in a timely manner, which would result in a not responding
Apache sometimes (sounds familar). Parameter tuning AuthenNTLM resulted
in Apache requests not being authenticated properly - which way are you
using to enable Apache to "speak NTLM"?
AuthenNTLM didn't seem to be as stable and reliable as the
libapache2-mod-auth-ntlm-winbind solution, so we switched. Just to
encounter slow AUTH connects, which seem to happen pretty randomly as well.

Eventually and imo it turns out that using NTLM+Apache is not the plain
simple and just be happy solution as it first seemed :(

Not using NTLM, Kerberos seems to be the best alternative to me, too...
oh well. I shall let you know.
