had indicated that you have already tried a snapshot. If you haven't,
then you really should.
Unfortunately, there is a bug in the current Cygwin CVS that causes
PostgreSQL to hang during a DROP TABLE. See the following for details:
I can email you a Cygwin DLL built from Cygwin CVS on 6/28/01 with the
problematic patch already removed or you can use the 6/16/01 snapshot
which is the last official snapshot that does not have this problem.
Either one is after 6/15/01, which Dmitry claims no longer has this
resource leak. Let me know which way you want to go.
You can find old snapshot here:
Note that the oldest one currently available on the Cygwin site is

I was hoping that you can reproduce the problem with something simple
like a bunch of selects, joins, inserts, deletes, etc. If I ultimately
need to pass this problem onto the core Cygwin developers, then a pg_dump
of a large database is not the way to go.
