Christian,

If you get to the point where you run PostgreSQL/postmaster as an NT
service via the 'srvany' or 'invoker' wrappers, you'll have to copy
postgres.exe to postmaster.exe rather than using a symlink.  That's
because the wrappers don't understand Cygwin symlinks, and the
executable has to be named 'postmaster' for it to start up in that
mode.  A hard link in NTFS might work, but I haven't tried it.
