There's a fuser in the psmisc package, but the latest version doesn't
work as expected, downgrading to the previous psmisc package helps
for now. But I don't think this will help you here.

Any process on the server started during login.

Most likely it's something in your login scripts. For instance,
consider expressions like this:
This results in a `ls //foo' call. // is the top-level of all UNC
network paths. THis call will result in Cygwin searching for a machine

I'm not an expert, but any kind of DNS communication problem can result
in delays trying to resolve a machine name. I don't know, it's just
some arbitrary idea for the potential cause of a spurious delay.
