I just built and uploaded 7.1.3 yesterday -- it should propagate to the
Cygwin mirrors shortly.

Did you read the README file?


If so, then you would have noted the following:

1. Install the latest cygipc from:

2. Install the cygipc ipc-daemon as a service, if appropriate for your platform
   (NT/2000 only):

    $ ipc-daemon --install-as-service

3. Start the cygipc ipc-daemon, as appropriate for your platform:

    $ net start ipc-daemon # NT/2000 or
    $ ipc-daemon &         # 9X/Me

If ipc-daemon is not running, then PostgreSQL (i.e, initdb and postmaster)
will hang.
