The above explains the "It seems to be as buggy as hell." comment. :,)

Please try to debug the above.  gdb would be best, but at least use
strace:

    $ strace -o psql.log psql ...

and send the output to cygwin(at)cygwin(dot)com(dot)

Since I do not have access to 9x/Me, I cannot debug this problem myself.

BTW, I believe this to be a generic socket problem under Cygwin on 9x/Me
which really has nothing specifically to do with PostgreSQL.  You can
try to search through the Cygwin archives to see if you can come up with
a resolution.  I tried a while ago but came up only with questions and
unfortunately, no answers. :,(

Just another WAG, but is your 98 the original version or SE?  Maybe your
MS Winsock stuff needs to be upgraded?
