Yes, when I set the value to 1300 MB, everything goes fine. Any value
higher than this value does not allow me to start the service.

Don't forget to cc: the list, other people will probably know more than
me.

OK. Thanks.

8.2.5 has been released, and you should consider upgrading soon. The 
Windows-related changes seem to be:
# Windows socket and semaphore improvements (Magnus)
# Make pg_ctl -w work properly in Windows service mode (Dave Page)
# Fix memory allocation bug when using MIT Kerberos on Windows (Magnus)
# Suppress timezone name (%Z) in log timestamps on Windows because of 
possible encoding mismatches (Tom)

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.2/static/release-8-2-5.html

Could the Kerberos-related bug be affecting you?

Does the problem go away when you put shared_buffers back to a lower
number?
