If it were a file permissions issue, I would suspect it would be an all
or nothing situation, would you not?  As I mentioned, the strange thing
is that once you stop and restart the service everything is fine, and it
appears to be triggered by sometimes reloading the config file.
I have gone on and explicitly added the postgresql service account and
given it full access rights to the directory.
Maybe this will keep it from recurring.

It sure *looks* like a file permissions issue.

FWIW, I see that port/win32/error.c translates these Windows
error codes to EACCES:

 		ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
 		ERROR_CURRENT_DIRECTORY
 		ERROR_LOCK_VIOLATION
 		ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION
 		ERROR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED
 		ERROR_CANNOT_MAKE
 		ERROR_FAIL_I24
 		ERROR_DRIVE_LOCKED
 		ERROR_SEEK_ON_DEVICE
 		ERROR_NOT_LOCKED
 		ERROR_LOCK_FAILED

It would appear that the underlying problem is one of these.
