I do not have a \$HOME/.bashrc or \$HOME/.bash_profile at the moment.
It seems to me that with the "!D:" etc. variables mentioned above,
CYGNUS keeps track of the last visited directories on the various
partitions. For instance, now I rebooted and have not accessed
any file on the floppy disk or any file over the network since
rebooting. If I now start a bash session, I only get the following
defined:
!C:='C:\WINNT\Profiles\jakobus.000\Desktop\Programme'
!D:='d:\corel\VERSIONS'

In particular, there is no reference to a network directory, but
still if I remove the network cable and type any CYGNUS command
from a DOS window, I observe a 40 to 80 sec delay.

Well, I agree, but not that much longer. This should be fractions of
seconds, and it should not make a difference whether my network cable
is attached or not.

I have tried this now as well (snapshot cygwin-inst-20000421.tar.gz,
version CYGWIN_NT-4.0 1.1.1(0.19/3/2) 2000-04-22 00:15:04 i686 unknown),
same effect.

As a cross test, I went again back to my CYGWIN installation
21.0(0.0/1/1) 1999-1-16 00:09:20, which I still had archived in
a zip file. There I do not observe the delays when the network
cable is not attached.

Cheers,
Ulrich
