That won't install either. The installer throws a fit (aka. an address
exception) after showing strange chars in the install tree root and only a
few leaves.

Okay, so I installed the latest and greatest complete cygwin WITHOUT
Postgres, installed the ipc-daemon (I can't get the one I had, so it's 1.13.
I installed, got the usual (at least on my machine) mode 0000 for all

When I pg_start'ed Postgres it took 99% cpu; the usual sign that it does not
find the ipc-daemon. I verified that the daemon ran. (It did). Chris send me
a copy of 7.2.3 (identical to the version I had before). I installed from
this version after completely uninstalling and physically removing the
cygwin directory tree:
        Same result.

Lastly I reinstalled with the latest version of postgres and voila, it ran
like a pink rabbit. Uninstalling Postgres and installing any of the two
prior versions resultet in 99% cpu from Postgres.

There is NO version 1.10 of cygipc aka. ipc-daemon on available for

so wrong with my install?

I don't think that is your problem as I successfully ran postgres 7.2.3 with cygipc 1.13 for several weeks before inadvertently upgrading to 7.3.2 like Gunter.
