Slow cygwin performance


I installed cygwin a few weeks ago and it has always been very slow.
At first I only needed to perform a few tests (I usually work using a
linux VM) so I didn't look too much into it, but now I might need to
use it more and it is simply not usable.

About every command I do takes about 15 seconds to execute. The delay
seems to come after the command has executed. So if I do "ls" I see
the contents of the directory almost immediately but then I get a
delay before getting back my prompt.

I did some reading on the mailing list archive for tips, I have
checked that my path does not contain network drive.

Here are 2 files.
-cygcheck.out done as instructed on the problems page using "cygcheck
-s -v -r > cygcheck.out" This was done using "strace ls -l >"

If you look at the last 2 lines of
   30  120175 [main] ls 5532 __to_clock_t: total 00000000 0000002E
14999334 15119509 [main] ls 5532 pinfo::exit: Calling ExitProcess n
0x0, exitcode 0x0

You can see that the last item is taking an insane amount of time. I
want to point out that if I do "time ls" several times, it will not
always take 15 seconds to execute but most (didn't do stats, but at
least 1/2 probably 3/4) of the time it will.

Is there anything I can do to speed things up?
