It turns out that the -X option does help quite a bit. Here are some rough
results based on using a stopwatch to time the interval from when I
double-click the bash icon on my desktop until I see a prompt:

20020626 snapshot,   no -X: 25.2 sec
20020626 snapshot, with -X:  6.7 sec
1.3.10-1,            no -X:  2.1 sec

I didn't retry the 0625 snapshot, but it ran about the same speed without the 
-X option.

Does that narrow things down any?


P.S. I can probably build a debug version of the dll, if that would help, but
it may be a few days before I have time.
