I think I've used chmod a+rw (there might be a more secure way to deal
with this issue, though). I'm on vacation and my Cygwin setup is
at work so I have to apologize that I can't check right now. The
original permissions were from a fresh Cygwin installation that I
did in the last week of August. When using the original permissions,
postmaster refused to start with no trace of a log file which appears
a bit obscure to the unsuspecting user.
The /tmp and /usr/bin permission comments indeed refer to issue #4 in
your documentation. I had to change these as suggested, otherwise
initdb would return an error.
Hope this helps
