cygwin/x symantec antivirus conflict

I, too, experience the problem, and the problem seems to depend on
IBM Thinkpad 600x 500 MHz, 200 MB mem.
I not only see the keyboard delay that Jack mentions, but I get terrible X
forwarding. Without Symantec, I wait about 10 seconds for all SAS windows
from a remote session to be displayed. With Symantec (although disk and
network checking are de-activated) it takes just over a minute for the
windows to be displayed. Even worse, if I run cygwin from a CD on this
machine with Symantec installed, it takes 30 minutes for windows from a
remote SAS session to be displayed, compared to about 20 seconds without
On a dual 3-GHz Xeon with 1 GB mem, I see no performance hit from
Symantec while running cygwin from CD or not.
