Can somebody summarize where we're at here. I've been noticing all this
email about slow startup and I'm excited by the inclusion of domain
accounts using /etc/nsswitch.conf, etc. I downloaded a newer version of
Cygwin a few weeks ago (I'm seeing 1.7.34) and I experienced the
slowdown myself. Unfortunately I'm too busy to actively participate but
it looks like some good progress has been made. Should I update or is
everything still in snapshots?

Fixes are in snapshots, as well as test releases (currently 1.7.35-0.4)
which can be installed with setup*.exe.

Hmmm... says:

You cannot use Cygwin Setup to install a snapshot.

Hmmm... maybe you should try to read Yaakov's entire sentence?


It is not clear from Yaakov's sentence that the phrase "which can be installed with setup*.exe" applied to test releases, snapshots or both.
