I run using Cygwin CVS a lot, so I have never actually used Cygwin
1.3.19-1.  However, I have not experienced the above behavior.  My
suggestion is to try the latest snapshot:

Note that this means to just replace cygwin1.dll not all of the files in
the cygwin package.

Please report your findings back to the list.  If I don't hear from you
(via the list), then I will try PostgreSQL under 1.3.19-1 on Monday.
