I realized that this was a 'crappy bug report' and even mentioned
so in my post but I thought, perhaps wrongly, that this was worth a 
'heads up' as I already had several hours into debugging this to no
avail with fetching the snapshot dll's, compiling both postgres and 
cygwin with and without -g running the regression test several times 
ect..,  and am not sure when my next couple of free hours are going 
to be, in order to dig into this deeper,

FWIW - Debugging a daemon is new experience for me :-)

My apologies for the line noise
