As Giorgio Pioda pointed out (another thread), the problem still exists. 
I've setup a jessie based VirtualBox environment from scratch and can 
confirm that he is right. So disabling of nscd netgroup caching is still

This is like stated.

Cool. That will make development easier.

I used something like this to fix the jessie systems:

#!/bin/bash -e
# debian-edu-jessie-fix
# Fix some leftover bugs (Debian Edu beta release -> final).
# 2016-18-06.

# Get profile.
. /etc/debian-edu/config

# Enable printer detection (all profiles).
apt-get update && apt-get install libnss-mdns

# Enable printer detection for LTSP clients.
if echo "$PROFILE" | grep -q 'Thin-Client-Server' ; then
    ltsp-chroot -a i386 apt-get update
    ltsp-chroot -a i386 apt-get install libnss-mdns

# Disable nscd netgroup caching, get rid of GOsa popup (only needed for Main-Server profile).
if echo "$PROFILE" | grep -q 'Main-Server' ; then
    systemctl stop nscd.service
    sleep 1
    if [ -e /var/cache/nscd/netgroup ] ; then
        rm /var/cache/nscd/netgroup
    sed -i '/netgroup/ s=yes=no=' /etc/nscd.conf
    systemctl start nscd.service
    sed -i 's/".*"/""/' /etc/gosa/gosa.conf
