Hey Frank,

I think I have the same post cygwin1.1.2 upgrade problem.

I've noticed that the traffic LEDs on the hub I use flicker when
cygwin starts to slow down.  Is it possible that cygwin is trying to
perform some kind of windows networking?  Heavens, could windows be
looking for a domain controller?  I think the next command is quick
because windows may cache the result of the domain controller lookup
for a little while.

I've tried to look for mounts or environment variables containing
'\\'.  The only one found was an env var named LOGONSERVER, and I
don't think UNIX would use that...
