With 7.3.1 you really should be using cygserver instead of the
ipc-daemon.  Was the cygserver config script run, installed as a
service, and running?  

Perhaps double check the directory permissions in case the X
installation changed any.

Bad system call to me would indicate postgres is not able to request a
program or file it needs.  It is the dam$ shmat error that no one seems
to be able to solve.

Reinstall cygwin as a last resort.
