You were right, my installation of the dev release of cygwin had failed.
Now everything is working fine with the following config :

cygwin (dev snapshot 2001-03-12)
cygipc-1.09-2
postgresql-7.1-beta6

Thanks for your quick answer !

I just tried the above and it passes the regression test without any
errors.

The above is a known problem that has already been fixed.  See the
following for details:

    http://www.postgresql.org/mhonarc/pgsql-ports/2001-02/msg00012.html
    http://www.postgresql.org/mhonarc/pgsql-ports/2001-02/msg00014.html

Try executing "uname -r".  Do you get "1.3.0s..." or "1.1.8..."?

Did you stop the ipc-daemon service (and *all* other Cygwin processes)
before installing the snapshot?  If not, then the Cygwin 1.1.8-2 DLL is
probably locked in memory preventing the snapshot DLL from taking affect.
