The TMPDIR variable is also translated by cygwin1.dll v1.1.0.  Is it
possible that this is a network path?

Also, if you run "strace -osomefile /bin/pwd" it will probably be
obvious what is causing the delay.  There will be a really large
number in the first field of somefile.

Actually, we add the "!" in front of the environment variables.  Microsoft
uses a "=" for these variables and we translate that to "!" since "="
is an invalid character for environment variable names in UNIX land.
