I compared the speed of running l2h on a document I have on
linux and on cygwin under windows 7 .

linux was ubuntu 10, was running inside virtual machine (oracle Vbox)

same exact latex document:

linux inside VMbox ---> 6 minutes to finish.
cygwin/windows 7 ---->  20 minutes

Most of the time is spend in "converting image #nnnn" phase.
under cygwin, it seems to take 4 seconds per image !
