ATM, no -- I need to build a debug-able Cygwin and PostgreSQL...

It is probably more involved than you want to get, but you just need to
follow the basic installation setup in my README:


Specifically, the following should reproduce the problem:

    0. Install the cygipc and postgresql packages, if necessary.

    1. Start the cygipc ipc-daemon2:

        $ ipc-daemon2 &

    2. Initialize PostgreSQL:

        $ initdb -D /var/postgresql/data

    3. Start the PostgreSQL postmaster:

        $ postmaster -D /var/postgresql/data 
        DEBUG:  database system is ready

    4. Kill the postmaster via SIGINT:

        DEBUG:  fast shutdown request
        [should hang here]
