I've been fighting with moving a PostgreSQL database from 7.1.3 to 7.2.1, on a
Win2k SP2 box with NTFS cygwin 1.3.10, cygipc , and found that the backend 
would stop on me everytime pg_restore tried to restore a very large 
largeobject (like 100+ Megabytes).  The error displayed would be:

FATAL 2:  link from /d/postgresql_data/pg_xlog/0000000000000047 to /d/postgresql
_data/pg_xlog/000000000000004F (initialization of log file 0, segment 79) 
failed: Permission denied

After poking around in the source, I came up with the basically the same patch 
I now see you guys were discussing just recently on the pgsql-cygwin archives,
where src/backend/access/transam/xlog.c is altered to use rename() instead of
link()/unlink() - as BeOS does.

So if people need another way to reproduce the problem, one way at least for 
me is to create a new database, import a single extremely large (100+mb) 
object, pg_dump it with something like: pg_dump -b -Ft -f foo.pgdump.tar 
mydbname, and then try to restore it with something like: pg_restore -Ft -d 
mydbname foo.pgdump.tar

It'll only take one or two tries for the backend to bail out.

So maybe there is something funky going on with link/unlink, and rename would 
be a better choice on cygwin.
