	I've now tested on two PCs running Windows XP Pro SP1 (one desktip PIII 
866, one IBM ThinkPad T21).  Tried this with Cygwin 1.5.4-1, and just 
yesterday with 1.5.5-1.  From cygcheck,

Package              Version        Status
cygipc               2.01-2         OK
cygwin               1.5.5-1        OK
postgresql           7.3.4-2        OK

In both cases, PostgreSQL shuts down fine (same log entries as above) 
and removes its PID file, but the CygIPC files are left behind after a 

I'm afraid I'm not on the Cygwin mailing list at this point.  Any chance
