I’m not entirely sure I understand the problem, but I’ve attached a starting point.

I’m pretty sure the issue brought up in this thread isn’t the only possible cause of slow launches.  DNS can do it, too, and I suspect if I wracked my brain some more on it, I could come up with other causes.

The DocBook isn’t validated.  It may need to be adjusted before it will let the FAQ document build correctly.  It might also be good to include olinks or ulinks to other parts of the Cygwin docs.
