The plot thickens or I spoke too soon.

Although initdb works, I am getting the following errors when I connect
to postmaster:

    # server side
    $ postmaster
    DEBUG:  database system was shut down at 2001-04-18 15:12:29 
    DEBUG:  CheckPoint record at (0, 1563376)
    DEBUG:  Redo record at (0, 1563376); Undo record at (0, 0); Shutdown TRUE
    DEBUG:  NextTransactionId: 619; NextOid: 18720
    DEBUG:  database system is in production state
    pq_flush: send() failed: The connection was aborted
    pq_recvbuf: recv() failed: errno ESHUTDOWN triggered

    # client side
    $ psql -l
    psql: pqReadData() -- backend closed the channel unexpectedly.
            This probably means the backend terminated abnormally
            before or while processing the request.

The Cygwin snapshot from 4/13/2001 works but the one from 4/14/2001
doesn't.  I'm trying to determine why.  I will report back when I get
more information.

If anyone wants to help, please jump in.

Thanks,
Jason
