Hello --

That apparently was the problem. The domain controller used by the system was offline for several hours.
Once it came back on-line, the lag that I described in my posting was no longer present.

I've run into similar, though not identical, issues when a machine is
part of an active directory domain.  Apparently, authenticating off the
domain controller.

Has there been any change in authentication methods, or joining a
Windows domain, or anything similar?
