this really sucks - 37 seconds to do /usr/bin/ls

Fri Sep 16 18:36:00 GMT 2011

OK , I was wrong.  I removed bash completion / git completion and on a 
Virtual Box VM (windows xp pro x32 with cygwin installed)

/usr/bin/ls and most other commands take more than 30 seconds to complete.
The box is a quad core with 8GB ram and no other VM is running (host OS 
is win 7 and cygwin runs blazingly fast).

I did not have this problem under Windows Virtual PC.  there must be 
something I installed with the latest cygwin that is doing this.

/usr/bin/ls takes more than 36 seconds.

When I vi a file, I have to go take a break and come back for it to be 
open in the editor.

any ideas?
