Hi Everyone,

I'm not sure of the detail behind winsup/cygwin/localtime.cc, but there are
problems with how Cygwin handles dates and times on Windows.

See http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2003-07/msg01016.html.

If there is any relevance, I think it is imperative that the Win32 version
of PostgreSQL links directly to the system clock and avoids this Cygwin bug.

Regards,
George
