Why would it take more than 3 seconds to start the postmaster under
Cygwin?  Something awfully fishy about that, unless you're using
a 286 ...

I didn't much care for the arbitrary delay in the first place, and
raising it to 10 sec is even less palatable.  Perhaps

	until psql ...args... </dev/null 2>/dev/null
	do
		sleep 1
	done

although it might also be prudent to refuse to loop more than a couple
dozen times.
