Hmmm.... today the problem is gone. I don't know what changed.

- I rebooted my machine yesterday, no help
- today I moved my machine(a laptop) to a different network, and now it

However, I'm not using the network when compiling. 

Very strange.

There is a problem somewhere, but obviously it isn't particularly common
or the CygWin guys would have known about it.

I think it has happened more than once and on more than one machine, but
since it is only a slowdown its not easy to track (or even positively
identify when it happens).
