Can somebody summarize where we're at here. I've been noticing all this 
email about slow startup and I'm excited by the inclusion of domain 
accounts using /etc/nsswitch.conf, etc. I downloaded a newer version of 
Cygwin a few weeks ago (I'm seeing 1.7.34) and I experienced the 
slowdown myself. Unfortunately I'm too busy to actively participate but 
it looks like some good progress has been made. Should I update or is 
everything still in snapshots?

Thanks in advance.
