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.



Observation:

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
