There may be no way around this.  There doesn't appear to be any way to
circumvent the long pause required for Windows to figure out network
stuff.  Corinna moved all of the network drive manipulation into a
separate thread which is terminated on a CTRL-C but Windows still
insists on waiting several seconds before the thread actually goes away.

I just rewrote things slightly to see if not terminating the thread helped
anything but it doesn't.  The program takes several seconds to *exit*
in that case.

In short, this seems like something we'll have to live with.  On my
system at least, Corinna's change made things a couple of seconds faster
than before so it shouldn't be as slow as the previous snapshot.
