  Well, then again, if you're running a command under strace, it's effectively
being debugged; you would expect it to be many times slower than usual.

  Ok, so why are you running your entire startup scripts under strace?  Heh,
only kidding, I guess you can't be doing that all the time.  It would be
useful if you'd sent your cygcheck output, we'd see if you have any network
drives in your path.

  I would guess it's interference from a
application.  The 7C812A5B address you quote is well outside the ranges where
the application and the cygwin dll get loaded, so I think it's coming from a
windows dll.

  If you wanted to get elaborate about it, you could run gdb, use it to debug
bash, and then use the 'info files' command when it hits the exception to see
what is occupying that area of memory.

  Also, there may be other problems that we aren't seeing.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
