I actually have a /tmp.

I found something. "ipc-daemon2 &" DOES start, but I have to do it manually.

I'd also like to know if this error really corresponds to ipc-daemon2, as
I read it in the Event Viewer, but nothing gets logged into /var/log.

I installed PostgreSQL to a non-previously-installed-cygwin system, by
downloding the setup program and choosing only PostgreSQL 7.4 and
leaving everything else as the default.

Check out this session. (Some messages are translated, so they might not
be exactly like the ones in English).

Your group is currently "mkpasswd".  This indicates that
the /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) files should be rebuilt.
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for example, run
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd
mkgroup  -l [-d] > /etc/group
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users.
