This message looks incomplete to me somehow.
Some ideas though:
- Perhaps the pg_hba.conf settings don't allow to connect to template1?
It should contain lines like
local all all trust
host all all 127.0.0.1 255.255.255.255 trust
- Did you try
psql -h localhost -l # list all databases: template0 and template1
should show up
connecting using TCP/IP instead of socket?
In postgresql.conf then there must be
tcpip_socket = true
- Perhaps you have another copy of PostgreSQL installed?
Mixing the client of one version with the server of another gives
mostly unexpected results.

This is "normal" on cygwin, I heard (my log has it too, but PG works
The other messages are even more normal, documenting ordinary server
