cygwin very slow under virtual box (productivity hit)

I have Windows XP Pro x32 in a VM with the latest version of cygwin
When I open a cygwin bash shell, and type '$ls' it just sits there forever.
Any other command I type is freakishly slow. How do I get this to run
faster under a vm environment.
I am not sure why it is taking so long to do a simple ls or mkdir or any
Even if I $vi a file it takes a while seriously cutting into the
productivity gains that cygwin on the host environment provides.
Is there a commercial version of cygwin or the likes that I can lay down
cash for to go fast under a VM environment?
I need to get this going or dump it all together for something else,
work has slowed to a halt.
