How do you suppose Cygwin is managing this interesting feat of only
using some of the CPU time? What Windows API is Cygwin using to just
grab a small slice of the time?
As a follow-up question: Why do you suppose we are punishing you by
not allowing Cygwin to use all of the CPU by default?
Oh. Wait. WJM. Nevermind.
