Is localhost correctly referenced? Does psql -h 127.0.0.1 template1 work?
You could try having a look at port 5432 with a port scanner to see if its
open.
Maybe try shuting postgresql down and deleting /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432 and
/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432.lock file.
As a side note, has any one else had their text come out backwards in the
cygwin BASH while PostgreSQL has been heavily busy?
