I have a corporate version of 184.108.40.2063, and see no slowdowns.
I didn't have to do anything special to make it work.
(Helpful post huh?)

Good idea, but no dice. I added the entire c:\cygwin\ tree to the
Symantec exclusion list, but the slowdown is still there. There's also
no difference if you disable network drive scanning, or something called
Threat Tracer (the purpose of TT is "Identify the source of network
share-based virus infections on computers that are running Windows
NT/2000/XP operating systems.")
This really sucks. I don't want to run without antivirus protection, but
the delay is really irritating.
Is anybody using Symantec Antivirus and NOT seeing a delay? If so, what
version of SA are you using? I have "full version 220.127.116.110", scan
