spawns this creature to load the Windows registry and other such things
when Windows programs are running. After they finish, the winserver
typically stays active for 3 seconds (by default) just in case another
windows process might want to start up. If I start the wineserver manually
with zero wait time (wineserver -f -p0), :make! exits with a much quicker
delay (about a second, down from about 4).
And that solves the case of the slow Vim :make!
Thanks for your help!
