Ah, we're getting closer to the problem. I expect that Cygwin commands running
from the DOS prompt to be slightly longer overall. Every instance of the
command has to load and initialize Cygwin. There is a means to add the
Cygwin1.dll to the list of "Known DLL's" that get loaded on startup of the
environment and that might speed up the commands for you. I don't remember the
particulars of how to do this but it is in one of the cygwin archives I don't
remember if it was discussed in cygwin or cygwin-developers.
