Hi Jason,

I've cleared /tmp and restarted ipc-daemon as suggested by Fred Yanowski.
That changed my error message to:

PC20 $ postmaster -i &
[1] 1232
PC20 $ IpcMemoryCreate: shmat(id=0) failed: error 0

[1]+  Exit 1                  postmaster -i

An upgrade to Cygwin 1.3.1 makes no difference. It has struck me that the
one thing I have probably done differently is using /data for my PGDATA
directory. I can't see how this could make any difference but it may be
worth mentioning.

Regards, Dave.
