An old W2K installation now fails with core dump after postmaster.
A new WXP installation fails in the same way.

Cygserver is running as a service and is started

Postmaster core dumps when run.

Running postmaster with debug gives:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The sygserver log shows plenty of semctl ops, but no obvious errors.

I've used the default cygserver.conf, but have since played around with the
settings.  By setting all the kern shm and sem settings to the max, the
cygserver fails to start and then becomes unstoppable (as reported by
someone else).

Any ideas?
Antony
