I've never seen this so maybe someone else on this list could help.
Maybe another EMACSulated user?

Well, yes and no. On cygwin, gcc, for example, definitely runs slower than
gcc on linux on the same hardware. But there are some common sources of extra
slowness such as antivirus scanners, accessing network drives, etc. Also if
you're like me and have a Athlon XP2400+ linux box and a Pentium 233MMX laptop,
the speed difference is... noticeable.
