Well it might help, but since I don't have this installed in any other envs and everything is working fine I prefer to try as a last resort.
If I won't be able to find the root cause I'll try this as well.

Running cygserver will also cache info and speed up processing if you run many:
- service daemons under Cygwin, especially cron jobs or ssh sessions
- concurrent processes, especially deeply nested, forked, or background
(some cron jobs background subprocesses *heavily* to reduce run time)
- XSI IPC message queues
- shared memory segments
otherwise that has to be managed by either the process itself or the root parent process, possibly in parallel threads.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
