The above is a known problem, see the following for a workaround:

    http://www.ca.postgresql.org/mhonarc/pgsql-ports/2001-04/msg00137.html

Please read the README that is part of the standard Cygwin PostgreSQL
distribution:

    /usr/doc/Cygwin/postgresql-7.1.README

I have attached a copy for your convenience.

Please post to pgsql-cygwin(at)postgresql(dot)org instead of sending private
email, so others can benefit too.

Thanks,
Jason
