It appears I've isolated the problem.
I downloaded and installed 1.13 of the ipc-daemon.
I am aware that this daemon has another issue, but if fixes my problem.
Possibly when the XP Fast-Switch problem was fixed, another was introduced.
Should I report this elsewhere as well?

No, here is the proper place. Post the details and the information
recommended at <>.

I thought that I had in the original post. What did I miss?

OK, I've reread the thread again. You have posted the details in your original message. Any chance you could verify whether Fast-Switch problem is the cause of the issue you see? Perhaps just the results of strace may provide some insight too.

PostgreSQL 7.3.2-1 may have been built against an older cygipc, please try the latest version, PostgreSQL 7.3.3-1. Does it work any better for you?


I won't even pretend to know how to use strace.
The problem appears to be related to a mismatch between cygipc versions and Postgresql versions.

Here is what I believe to be accurate:
Postgresql 7.3.2-1 works with cygipc 1.13 with the caveat of the Fast-Switch problem
Postgresql works with cygipc 1.14 with the caveat that it can only be started once per WindowsOS boot.
Postgresql 7.3.3-1 appears to work correctly with cygipc 1.14.

I don't know if this is true for other OS types/versions.
I only know it is true for my machine (with the results of cygcheck in the original post).

Thanks to both Larry Hall and Jason Tischler for getting me straightened out.
