Are you serious? I mean are you really seriously serious about that?
You have shell scripts(?) called Foo.txt?! And you are complaining
that a Cygwin shell script(?) runs slower when Zone Alarm(!!) is
running. And crashing. I mean, sorry. That's silly. Really silly.
Install Zone Alarm on your MAC and the compare the timings. Or the
FYI: Zone Alarm is one of the famous applications that make "Cygwin"
sincerely misbehave. So if something doesn't work or crash the first
question is: are you running Zone Alarm or [insert other apps]? If
yes, then uninstall.
