I just tried it myself and it works.  The only difference that I can see
between your setup and mine is:

    1. I'm logging in as jt not administrator (but actually jt is in the
       administrators group)
    2. I'm using a cygwin1.dll that I built myself from Cygwin on Feb 13
       09:39 2001.

The only idea that I have is try the list.  BTW, when initdb crashes, is
their any output?
