uname -r returns 1.3.0s(0.37/3/2)

is that significant?

Looks like we're still having the same problem, even after grabbing the most
recent dll and changing our PGDATA value.

you are correct that i am not doing any building of my own (i have neither
the tools nor the expertise).

thanks for the help, btw.

What does uname -r display?  If it indicates "1.1.8...", then you must
upgrade to a recent snapshot.


The above is only relevant *if* you are building PostgreSQL yourself --
not if you are using a pre-built version.

Just to be sure, are you using the 7.1rc4 that I contributed to Cygwin?

Sorry, but I can't make much out of your debug info.

Most likely, see the following for one way of replacing your Cygwin DLL:

No one can download from the Cygwin FTP site anymore.  You must use a
mirror.  Try the following:

BTW, the above is a strange value for PGDATA.  I would use
/usr/share/postgresql/data instead.
