This is bizarre... what would cause calls to the same Windows API
function behave so differently when called by stat vs ls vs
bash-autocomplete? I'm happy to accept that there's some weirdness on my
box, but I would have expected that weirdness to be consistent at any
given instant in time (either all go slow or all behave normally).

Does anybody know a system call which allows to fetch the network drive

What if we parsed the mount table instead of calling readdir? I
don't know how that's computed, but it's never been a performance
problem, it only shows drives that are actually connected [...]
What mount table? Cygwin's? It calls GetFileAttributes on the drive's
root dir as well...
At least the problem has gone back into hiding for the moment... I guess
I'll just have to hope Windows doesn't change its mind again for a while.
Thanks for looking into this.
