Oh great. I'm afraid fixing this is above my head. But at least I'd like to help
track down the culprit. The interesting fact is that I've downgraded all
relevant packages that I can think of (PostgreSQL, cygwin1.dll), rebooted the
box, stopped cygserver, but still get the error. How can I hose a Cygwin
installation that not even downgrading helps? What is it that I did not
downgrade that causes the problem? Does setup.exe keep a log of what I
I do like PostgreSQL on Unix a lot, but I really hate to ever touch setup.exe
because more often than not I'm left with a broken database engine.
