The problem was that I double started cygserver, which cause it to lock up,
The point is, when you run the cygserver-install script, it puts an entry
in Start->control panel->Administrative functions->Services, and so
apparently when you start up Cygwin, it automatically starts cygserver.
Not realizing this, I started cygserver manually, which claimed that it had
failed, but actually did not shut down, so there were two processes
running. Anyway, if I just start postmaster it works.
Thanks Mike and others. I think I got it now. On to the database matters!!
