I suggested using 20010413 (to the entire pgsql-cygwin list not just
you) to workaround the Cygwin AF_UNIX socket problem -- not to solve
your original problem.

The above will be interpreted by Cygwin as a UNC path. In this case,
Cygwin will look for share "postgres" on machine "bin".

If your Cygwin installation is set up correctly, then you should be able
to just type:
Hence, I believe that you environment (i.e., PATH) is not set up
