Hi Evandro !

There is a bug in the PostgreSQL 7.4.3.
Visit the following link (on the official mailing list of Cygwin) :
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2004-08/msg00060.html

Project co-leader works on this.

I installed Cygwin without PostgreSQL using setup.exe. Then I install
postgresql 7.4.2 available in the packages from Cygwin. : This works seems
to works fine.
Attention : Installation directory are not the same than with the 7.4.3
version.
