Can't get the postgres server started under Win2000/cygwin. Here's
what happens:

$ initdb -D /Gauss/rr/data -W 
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "yates".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

The version is 

$ initdb --version

I also cannot stop the cygserver:

$ /usr/sbin/cygserver -S
