The above indicates that postmaster did not start up.  I have seen
reports of the above error message before.  Unfortunately, I have not
received definitive confirmation of a solution.

Does the following from the README help?

    2. It is recommended to delete all cygipc temporary files
    (/tmp/cygipc* and /tmp/MultiFile*) before starting postmaster under
