RE: cygwin archive? (previous versions for fallback)

Shoot the messenger? Heck, no!

Occam's Razor shaved again!
(Even though it seemed improbable, it was the only option left.)

I installed cygipc 1.11.1 on the other machine (which has the mosaic
new-system + 'old' postgres) linked to the data, pgdumped all and

HEUREKA it worked!!!

Thank you all so much for your kind help.

Btw. I assume that I am not the only one whose data got lost and as we all
know, backup is for newbies! The pro does not err and does not need backup,
right? :p

So if others have the same problem, they will hopefully find the following

1.	Download Postgres 7.2.x (I still have the tarball and will keep for
1/2 year a copy. I will send a copy to whoever requests it) 
2.	Install Postgres (old)
3.	Download cygipc 1.11. Either from the site below or I can send it
4.	--remove-as-service cygipc 1.13 or 1.12 (if that's what you have)
5.	tar xvfj cygipc-1.11-1.tar.bz2
6.	--install-as-service it
7.	pg_dumpall
8.	Repeat steps 3 to 6 replcing cygipc 1.11 with 1.13 back
9.	Reinstall pg 7.3.x
10.	Restore and you are done!

Thank you all again for your contributions.

Correct.  Just use cygipc 1.11-1:

Do not shoot the messenger, but there was a change between 1.11-1 and
1.13-2 that prevents backwards compatibility.
