The culprit is Endnote X.0.2. I found the Word STARTUP folder (Word:
Tools -> Options -> File locations -> Startup), closed Word, moved the
Zotero.dot files (the Zotero plugin) out of it, re-started Cygwin,
started Word, still slow.
Then I shut Word down, moved the EN10Cwyw files (the EndNote plugin)
out of STARTUP, re-started Word, and Cygwin was slow again.
