Does the following from the README help?
3. Cygwin PostgreSQL can fail to start or not function properly if
certain files and directories have incorrect permissions. The
following usually solves these kinds of problems:
$ chmod a+rwx /tmp
$ chmod a+rx /usr/bin /usr/bin/*
$ chmod a+rw /var/log # could adversely affect other daemons
In particular, note the third chmod above.
