Long pause occurs randomly in bash
It has been reported that bash will hang for several seconds upon
occasion. We are looking into this problem. It does not seem to occur
when bash is started under a command prompt. Reportedly, if you
specify the 'Start in' directory in the shortcut, the problem goes away.
If I set the 'Start in' directory in the shortcut for bash to either
"C:\" or "/", I will get long pauses (not so randomly) in bash.
If I set the 'Start in' directory in the shortcut properties to any
other directory (eg, "/home"), the problem seems to go away.
Setup: Windows NT 4.0 SR3, AMD K6 PC
