hi,

i finally got initdb with postgresql 7.4.1 on cygwin/winXP working for me:

i applied dos2unix (see: http://www.bastet.com/software/software.html, or: 
http://www.bastet.com/software/UDDU.ZIP) on the file:

/usr/local/pgsql/share/postgres.description

without this there was always an error:
...
loading pg_description... ERROR:  end-of-copy marker does not match 
previous newline style
CONTEXT:  COPY tmp_pg_description, line 1542: ""
...
