Does the following from the README help?

    3. Cygwin PostgreSQL can fail to start or not function properly if
    certain files and directories have incorrect permissions.  The
    following usually solves these kinds of problems:

        $ chmod a+rwx /tmp
        $ chmod a+rx /usr/bin /usr/bin/*
        $ chmod a+rw /var/log # could adversely affect other daemons

In particular, note the third chmod above.
