After some more experimenting, and reading on Comodo issues in combination with Chrome, I found the following solution:
Add the cygwin installation folder to Comodo's 'Detect Shellcode Injections Exclusions' setting. This will lead to an immediate drop
in 'spawn' times to more acceptable levels. Somehow 'Detect Shellcode Injections' is active, even when HIPS is disabled.
