Can you disable it ?

yes; no change.


As next step, can you remove it ?
Some can interfere also when disabled.

In addition you can run

  strace -o pipe.strace cat test.txt |head

on fix and removable drive. May be will give some additional hint.

To see if any program is injecting dll's on your system
you can also looks on /proc/self/maps

On my W7 cygwin 32bit

$ cat /proc/self/maps | awk '{print $6}' |sort -u


so only cygwin or MS shared lib.

I forgot one question :
 did your XP system ever worked with a cygwin installation ?

I doubt latest cygwin changes broke XP, but may be it happens.
