Yes, I remembered a few days ago that I have a problem with all MSYS/MinGW based programs, and M-x about-emacs shows it was built using MinGW. Here is the description of my symptoms with MSYS (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=202435&aid=2077300&group_id=2435)

For example, as detailed in that link, launching rxvt.exe (which comes with MSYS) takes quite a few seconds. I don't know if it "stutters" the same way as Emacs because I am not typing as much in it; in fact, Emacs is the most interactive MSYS/MinGW application I have.

On the one hand, I'm sorry that blamed Emacs, but on the other hand since the Windows version of Emacs uses MSYS, this is relevant.

You could be right about MinGW. I've tried to find a emacs23 VC build, but couldn't find anything... probably I will try to compile myself when I find some time..
