Your comparison is not apples to apples.  Usually laptop hard disks
are much slower than desktop ones, which could be causing some of the
perceived slowness.  Nevertheless, like I said before, a Cygwin app
should be expected to be slower than a Linux app on the same hardware.
I'll be very interested to see Terry's apples to apples comparison,
if I can help solve the Cygwin DLL (or PostgreSQL) resource leak.  Sigh...

You're very welcome.
