Use 'set -vx<ENTER>' before typing '/cyg<TAB>', so that you can see the
full range of any commands being executed while computing the
completion. If any one of them takes particularly long, that would be
useful to know. Also, it may just be an issue of BLODA or windows
itself taking a long time to enumerate all files in a large directory.
