I haven't digged too much. Likely, it works under GNU/Linux because any
"adb devices" call returns in time, successful or not.

On MS Windows, the very first call of "adb devices" does not return in
the case no Android device is connected. Once adb runs on MS Windows,
any further call of "adb devices" returns in time.

So there is no difference in the timeout behaviour of Emacs. But since I
don't test on MS WIndows usually, it took that time to understand/fix
the problem for me.

Best regards, Michael.
