I have a feeling another means will be required. Though I'm relatively
sure that the Cygwin /bin directory is being prepended (and the 2nd
portion of help was just poorly worded), I thought I'd try the above
steps. Unfortunately, no go.
First, the "Allow service to interact with destkop" setting is only
available when the service is started under the Local System account.
However, the whole point of this test is to see what happens when
postmaster is run as user 'postgres'. Just the same, either way
(running as user 'postgres' or as Local System account) BASH fails to
start. The Event Logs are not very useful in telling you why, though.
So short of another means (possibly some kind of script--avoiding
desktop interaction--which saves the environment table to a file), not
sure how to tell other than looking at source.
I'll tinker and see if I can't get some positive feedback.
