gv became really slow?

It used to be the case that opening a postscript file with gv on
cygwin was more or less immediate. I've recently updated cygwin and
now it takes about 2-5 seconds (a clock is displayed while gv is
"thinking"). This happens even if the postscript file contains only a
few words. For example, if you do:
% echo hello > hello.txt
% a2ps hello.txt -o hello.ps
% gv hello.ps
The gv version I have running is 3.6.5 (cygwin 1.5.25 on XP). I have
no way of telling whether this is a cygwin problem or something else.
But running the above example on a debian machine with a gv-3.6.5
installed results in an immediate, much snappier, response.
Is this just my problem? And if not, can something be done?
