My WAG is yes, but I haven't looked into the (cygipc) code.
Note that with cygipc 1.09 and later (thanks to Fred), ipc-daemon can
be installed as an NT service. Once ipc-daemon is installed as such,
it is automatically started when NT is booted. Since I always install
ipc-daemon as a service, I have little motivation to track down this hang.
However, I hope not to discourage anyone else from finding the cause of
the hang and fixing it.
