Signal 12 is "Bad system call".  Quoting from
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/postgresql-7.4.5.README:

---------------
Regardless of the installation type, the first step is to add "server" to
your CYGWIN environment variable setting and start cygserver.  See the
cygserver README:

    /usr/share/doc/cygwin/cygserver.README

for more details.  If the CYGWIN variable is not set correctly and/or
cygserver is not running then initdb and postmaster will fail to run
properly.
---------------

Looks like that's what's happening in your case.
HTH,
