XP is supported because Cygwin supports XP.  Sorry, but I don't have
access to XP, so I can't help to debug this problem.  However, note that
others have reported success with XP.

Try to use strace to debug.  Note that you will have to temporarily
replace the postmaster symlink with a copy of postgres.exe:

    $ rm /usr/bin/postmaster
    $ cp /usr/bin/postgres.exe /usr/bin/postmaster.exe

This is because strace is *not* a Cygwin app, it's a Mingw app, and does
not understand symlinks.

Run strace as follows:

    $ strace -o postmaster.log postmaster -i -D /database

You can also try posting your problem to the cygwin(at)cygwin(dot)com list.

BTW, did you really initdb into /database?
