Thank you for the response. before the posting goes to further discussion. I 
realize this for cygwin discussion. You are right when running Postgresql 
need to be in native Windows or Linux. So that's why I am choosing 
Postgresql 8.0. I already post this issues in diffrent group. that's in 
pgsql performances. (just for clarification, I am not running it in cygwin 
environment. It just happens I do not not which group to post. And thought 
cygwin is for postgresql in windows environment).

Thank you,
