If you have the possibility, try SSSD [1]. It works fine with Thunderbird and does away with all the cruft that nscd and co. brought along. One single and easy to understand config file to configure it.
It's here in production with Ubuntu 12.04.* and never had problems again - which is in sharp contrast to ns(l)cd. Packages are available for Ubuntu in standard repositories.
A small howto is at [2].
