When executed this oneliner over Samba 4.3 network share, it takes 5 seconds

I'm wondering if this is Cygwin, Samba or Windows networking issue?
BTW -- found the cause of this:
There are 3 values to control cache lifetime.
FileInfoCacheLifetime (default 10 seconds)
FileNotFoundCacheLifetime (default 5 seconds)
DirectoryCacheLifetime (default 10 seconds)
The FileNotFoundCacheLifetime looks to be the culprit -- since
when I traced the ethernet traffic with wireshark, I would see
multiple responses of 'notfound' before it finally showed up.
I reset my 5-second value to 3, and your script passed over
its value in 3 seconds after that...
You might have to reboot your machine to ensure the value gets
propegated to the LANmanworkstation client.
There are other ways, but none that reliable.
