I'm using cygwin for years already.
I didn't use to have this problem in the past. It's something
relatively new, that became way more intense in the past few months
where I both re-installed windows at home, and got a fresh PC at work.
On both machines I'm referring to the main user, which is part of the
I believe that answers your question.
Both machine are Windows 8.1 64-bit, standalone station at home and
part of a domain at work.
