What version of Cygwin are you running? Some snapshots (i.e., 20010414
and 20010416) had UNIX domain socket connection problems.

Sorry, I can't help you with the above but try the following. Start
postmaster as follows:
$ postmaster -i
and psql as follows:
$ psql -h localhost ...
or createdb as follows:
$ createdb -h localhost ...
The above with uses TCP sockets instead of UNIX sockets. Does this work
in your environment?

Using a Cygwin console as opposed to cmd.exe/command.com or rxvt should
have no effect.
