Bingo! My WAG is that more than one process is trying to (exclusively)
access the same file.

When you can, you may want to strace postmaster so you can get the
winerror that is associated with the permission denied error. However,
I will warn you that the strace log will probably be huge and the
winerror will most likely be 5.
Another alternative is to use the Sysinternals Filemon utility to
determine whether or not my WAG is correct. Unfortunately, if I am,
then it may be difficult to solve this problem... :,(

No, this is probably the best place. You may want to try the Cygwin
list if you can isolate the problem down to a Cygwin issue.
