I tried installing the 7.4.2 package today with no success.

I understand that because of a bug fix between 7.4.1 and 7.4.2, a 
dump/restore cycle is recommended. So I dumped my current db's, installed 
7.4.2 via cygwin's setup application, logged in as my postgres user, and 
proceeded to init.

Instead of seeing the normal progress of initdb, I saw the following...

$initdb -D /usr/local/data

I'm running Windows XP service pack 1
uname -a returns
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 SQUEEZEBOX 1.5.10(0.116/4/2) 2004-05-25 22:07 i686 unknown 
unknown Cygwin

I Reinstalled 7.4.1-3, and executed the normal initdb/restore cycle 
without a problem at all.
