Does the following from the README help?

    2. It is recommended to delete all cygipc temporary files
    (/tmp/cygipc* and /tmp/MultiFile*) before starting postmaster under
    a different user account.  Otherwise, postmaster will fail to start
    due to IPC errors.  Note cygipc 2.x automatically removes these
    files during normal shutdown so this issue has been essentially
    obviated.

If not, what does the following indicate?

    $ ls -ld /tmp /tmp/cygipc* /tmp/MultiFile*
    drwxrwxrwx+ 294 Administ Domain U   438272 Nov  3 14:06 /tmp
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 system   Administ  3916720 Nov  3 07:01 /tmp/MultiFileMsg2
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 system   Administ    23568 Nov  3 07:01 /tmp/MultiFileSem2
    -rw-rw-rw-    1 system   Administ   204304 Nov  3 07:01 /tmp/MultiFileShm2
    -rw-------    1 postgres None      1499136 Nov  3 07:02 /tmp/cygipc2_0
