[foofus-tools] pwdump

I cannot recall - is pwdump caching the results locally? I seem to recall some versions doing that.  I.e., it builds up all the data in memory, then dumps to a file.  If that is the case, I can see some scale issues with 3.5 million entries in your AD, i.e., you'd eat up the memory.

When it is chugging along, have you run taskmgr, sort by memory usage, and observed who the hogs were?
