I did a short test of the new net release and also noticed this slow
return to the prompt after completion. One added piece of info that may
help is that it seems to be specific to the DOS console. I have X11
setup and when bash was running in an xterm, there was no slow exit
problem. I have 'tty' set in my CYGWIN variable.
