Why is this even necessary anyways? Other than "because it's always been
this way"? I've been as stalwart a defender of cygwin as you'd find at my
various companies over the years but this wart is getting really hard to
ignore. In particular, since I myself can't do subversion or various other
things any more without devolving to something like (ugh) tortoise.

Short answer: It's an artifact of emulating fork on Windows. Long answer: See the email archives for all the discussions about it and attempts to make this less painful.

You may find that limiting the number of packages/DLLs installed helps.
