Hello, Tomás,

I do not think there is a problem with DNS lookup timeouts!

If it would be so, we must also have the problem with the cygwin prior to 
2008-06-18.

Furthermore, the problem does not occur, if we use local Windows users in 
our passwd file.

Looking at all facts I reported, I have to conclude that the cause for the 
behaviour is in the cygwin environment.

Thanks and 

best regards

Carsten Porzler
