I have experienced the same. Remove the + entry from the /etc/group files and everything will be back to
normal. The /etc/group entries are not cached and each machine has to search through all of them via the
NIS server to figure out to which groups a user belongs. The debian scheme adds a group for each users
making the problem much more acute with debian.
We have solved it by copying the /etc/group to all the machines with a cron job at night.
