Very odd.  Portmap is about as simple as you can get.

Do you have Cygwin installed for just yourself, or for all
users?  Running portmap as a service executes it under the
LocalSystem account, not your user account.

The reference to cygrunsrv.exe should be correct.  If you open
the portmap service from the Services display in MMC, does it
show "-F" as the start parameter (edit field towards the bottom
of the dialog box?)
