Are you referring to the problem that I reported?  If so, would you be
willing to try with my .bash_profile files if I post them?

I'm willing to try.  Unfortunately, this problem may have been lurking for
a long time.  IIRC, I only started to notice this around the time that
Cygwin bash 2.05 was released by Corrina (around 5/01) and I started
to go (bash) command completion happy --  causing me to add two more
command substitutions.

Under NT 4.0 SP5, this problem only occurred very occasionally.  Only
after recently upgrading to 2000 SP1 (and adding a little more RAM) has
the problem become intolerable.

I'm also willing to post (compressed) strace logs of a good and bad test
run for perusal.  The compressed logs are about 128 KB each so I can put
them on my web site for download if that is preferred.

Please let me know which way you want to proceed.
