The above is caused by your pg_hba.conf file being a text mode (i.e.,
has CRNL instead of NL line endings) file.  Convert it to a binary mode
file and the above error with be eliminated.

My guess is that your editor accidentally converted pg_hba.conf to text
mode when your were editing it.  Otherwise, you installed Cygwin with
text mode mounts as your default.  You can determine this by using mount,
as in:

    $ mount
    Device              Directory           Type         Flags
    C:\Cygwin\bin       /usr/bin            system       binmode
    C:\Cygwin\lib       /usr/lib            system       binmode
    C:\Cygwin           /                   system       binmode

If the Flags indicate "textmode" instead of "binmode", then execute
something like the following:

    $ mount -f -b -s C:/Cygwin /
    $ mount -f -b -s C:/Cygwin/bin /usr/bin
    $ mount -f -b -s C:/Cygwin/lib /usr/lib

Otherwise, rerun Cygwin's setup.exe and choose "Unix" for the "Default
Text File Type".

BTW, you may want to reinstall PostgreSQL, since other files may have
been converted to text mode.
