In retrospect, I should have created the file some other way, but still..

data is still scrolling by & it's not even up to 100K lines yet :(

Is there some way to make a paste operation faster in mintty (or vim
or whatever the slowpoke is)?

Use the right tool for the job:

   $ time awk -F, '{print $2}' top-1m.csv > hosts.txt
