The problem is Cygwin emulates Posix streams and this adds significantly
to the overhead of stream based ops

The XML files require *many* stream ops

This addirional overhead is not present in MingW in that it uses
native Win32 streams.

I guess I should mention the deficiencies of non MSoft OSs but
I will leave the *flames* for another time :-)
