Thanks Dave.  I wasn't ignoring you.  I was just waiting until I had some
solid information to reply.  I really do appreciate the help and

I'm not completely sure this is the issue yet, but I believe it is.  I was
able to reproduce the problem without involving Cygwin at all.  An xcopy
from a Samba mounted drive on the Solaris box to the local disk in a
cmd shell also triggered the problem (although it was a much slower copy
with all those network file open/close operations required).

Even though this is now off-topic, I'll follow up just to close the thread
for the archives when I verify that one of those registry settings
actually fixes it.

Thanks again.
