console scroll speed on Win XP

- Subject: console scroll speed on Win XP
I just got done setting up cygwin on an XP laptop.
Previously, I had set it up on a couple of 2k machines and one other XP desktop.
The XP console scroll rate seems to be intolerably slow only on the XP machines. I thought it
may be due to cygwin but even a DOS window scrolling seems slow.
It scrolls by slowly trying to do a "dir" and maxes out my 1.8Ghz CPU.
Is there some option to turn off to make this reasonable or has anyone
else seen this problem? I set display options to maximize performance
and there don't seem to be any options available for the cygwin window
that would help.
I noted that some previously slow to render html does display more
quickly on my new XP install than on 2k but I can' imagine how you can
max out a>1 Ghz CPU scrolling text in a small window.
Has anyone else noticed this?
