OK -- using snapshots from

postgres runs fine using snapshot DLL dated 20011231
crashes for me with all DLL's dated 20020104 and later

I have a locally built DLL 20020103 that also crashes

In an attempt to see if this was just an introduced 'incompatability'
with previous cygwin dlls I tried building postgres from scratch
with todays Cygwin CVS files
make check failed for me with < failed to createdb >  
This could be do to local error however as I am not all that
familiar with the postgres build
