Solution to terrible performance in Cygwin under VPN

               We did some debugging, and we eventually traced the problem down to using Cygwin downloaded by userid@xxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:userid@xxxxxxxxxxxx> after our userid was updated to userid@xxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:userid@xxxxxxxxxxx>.  Something must be cached somewhere, and the discrepancy between the domains slows down commands tremendously.  We following the steps for Uninstalling Cygwin from Windows, reinstalled it as userid@xxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:userid@xxxxxxxxxxx>, and now our performance is back to what it was before.
