Kevin's howto is a "little" dated.  You no longer need to use TCP/IP
sockets to connect to postmaster under Cygwin, you can now use the
default Unix domain sockets (as on other Unix platforms).  Hence,
the solution to the problem above is to start psql *without* the "-h
localhost" option.  Otherwise, you need to start postmaster with the
"-i" option which instructs it to listen on TCP/IP sockets too.
