I see the following reply from Chris in cygwin's archive(I'm not
the member).

  That would be the "workaround" that I kept mentioning previously.
  It relies on polling and that is a something I'd rather avoid, if

My proposal is to pgsql-cygwin not to cygwin from the first.
The following is an example.

Comments ?

#ifdef __CYGWIN__
                        fd_set  rmask;
                        int     nsocks;

                        FD_SET(MyProcPort->sock, &rmask);
                        nsocks = MyProcPort->sock + 1;
                        if (select(nsocks, &rmask, (fd_set *) NULL,
(fd_set *) NULL, (struct timeval *) NULL) < 0)
                                if (errno == EINTR)
                                fprintf(stderr, "pq_recvbuf: select()
failed: %s\n",
                                return EOF;
#endif /* __CYGWIN__ */
                        r = recv(MyProcPort->sock, PqRecvBuffer +
                                        PQ_BUFFER_SIZE - PqRecvLength,
