Please try a "make installcheck" -- this will run the tests sequentially
instead of in parallel.  I'm doubtful that this will work since others
have already tried it and were unsuccessful, but since it is easy it
is worth a shot.  Remember to install PostgreSQL and start postmaster
(and ipc-daemon) before you run this version of the regression test.

Note that these patches are no longer necessary when you use the latest
Cygwin CVS or Cygwin 1.3.0 (which is yet to be released).

I quickly searched the MS MSDN/KB but came up empty.  As the Core Cygwin
developers have said many times, "I hate Windows 9X/Me!"
