After opening the Cygwin shell, I get the black box and a blinking

Are you running bash? Have you installed the bash-completion package?
Yes, and no.
OK then the easiest thing to do is add "set -x" to your ~/.bash_profile
and watch where the delay happens as the statements scroll by. This
should help you pinpoint it, assuming it's something Cygwin is doing
and not something Windows (or your environment is doing before bash
and Cygwin even starts).
