That CPU has 2 cores and hyperthreading, i.e. 4 virtual cores. Can you try this:

  ML "Multithreading.max_threads_value ()"

There is some chance that it gives 4, because Cygwin is not reliable in reporting virtual CPU cores. Since starting external processes in parallel imposes an extra load on Cygwin, it might explain the timeout of the provers.

The Isabelle/jEdit plugin options offer the possibility to set "threads" explicitly, e.g. to 2. Does this change the situation?
