Also, why does nfs access appear to be so horribly slow? Loading

  I resolved the problem with slowness. This appeared to happen
because of seteuid() error (discovered in logs). Local system
account on Win7 doesn't have token creation/change rights. I fixed
this by creating own local user with sufficient privileges and
running nfsd under this account. BTW, may be you should add remark
about this particularity into nfs-server.README file? It's not
obvious, because the system works, just very slowly. The user might
think it's okay.
The problem is that the NFS-server package in Cygwin is orphaned since
the maintainer has moved on.  If somebody is interested to pick up
maintainance of that package, you're welcome.  See for more information.  The cygport
packaging method is the preferred packaging method these days.
