Alternately, you could create /etc/sudo.conf with a line like:

Debug sudo /var/log/sudo_debug nss at trace

then run a sudo command.  If you look in /var/log/sudo_debug
for the lines that contain:

    -> make_grlist_item


    <- make_grlist_item 

and compare the timestamps for the -> (function entered) and <-
(function exit) lines, if you see that function taking several
minutes then the problem is with group ID to name resolution in the
Powerbroken Open nss module.
