Hi, yesterday I upgraded my cygwin on Windows XP to the 1.5.18-1 version, and 
now the previously installed postmaster (7.4.5-1) doesn't start anymore. It was 
working fine before the upgrade.

The environment seems correctly set up:

admin(at)DATA ~
$ env | grep CYGWIN
CYGWIN=server

and the cygserver service is running:

admin(at)DATA ~
$ ps -ef
     UID     PID    PPID TTY     STIME COMMAND
   admin     776       1 con  19:11:17 /usr/bin/bash
  SYSTEM    2936       1   ?  12:06:11 /usr/bin/cygrunsrv
  SYSTEM     928    2936   ?  12:06:11 /usr/sbin/cygserver
   admin    3624     776 con  12:10:29 /usr/bin/ps

However, when I start postmaster it runs for a few seconds only and then stops. 
I upped the log level, and here's the result of starting postmaster manually:

admin(at)DATA ~
$ postmaster -D /var/postgresql/data -i

I tried tinkering with the /etc/cygserver.conf file, but I'm not making any 
progress because I don't know exactly what I should change... Any help is 
*greatly* appreciated.
