Which shows that the delay isn't cygserver specific, but occurs in the
cygwin DLL somehow.  I'm somewhat low on time right now but I'll look
into this at one point. 

For a start, can you make absolutely sure that this effect isn't related
to some third party product?  Did you try to find if there's some interferring badly on that machine?
