Cygwin got V E R Y slow after network switchover

Our company recently switched to an "active directory" network, with
different login credentials.  Don't ask me what that is exactly.  Ever
since, anything having to do with Cygwin takes seconds or minutes,
whereas it used to be instantaneous.  Even having "uname -a" in a Take
Command (like CMD.EXE) shell causes the shell window to take seconds
to come up.  Comment out the uname, and the shell window comes up
instantaneously.  You don't want to know how long I have to wait for
an Xterm to start so I can run Emacs to open a file...

My /etc/nsswitch.conf is as follows (the only thing I define is db_home).

# passwd:   files db
# group:    files db
# db_enum:  cache builtin
# db_home:  /home/%U
db_home:  /cygdrive/c/Users/jr920141/Box%_Sync/Home
# db_shell: /bin/bash
# db_gecos: <empty>

I've attached cygcheck.out but don't know if that will help.

It's the exact same laptop.  I don't know why a network change would
cause Cygwin to slow down so much.  Suggestions or speculations would
be appreciated!

Thanks - Jim
