Those are definitely what I would call massive ADs! We don't run into
them all that often, and so we don't do a lot of testing on such sizes.

It will be VERY slow to dump that many users. As luck would have it, I
am (right as we speak) working on a new version of pwdump which uses
direct registry access to pull in accounts, and should run magnitudes
faster. It will probably be a few days yet, but once I get it done, I
might be able to get you a beta copy if you want to give that a try.
