Here's a proposed patch.  Thoughts?
Ugly, but it will hold the fort until someone can debug the service
code for Cygwin.


I downloaded the official Cygwin packages into a Cygwin instance and checked how they do things. As I rather expected, they do not use pg_ctl at all to install or run as a service. Rather, they use the standard Cygwin service utility cygrunsrv. This is all managed via a SYSV style init script.

So if anything I'd be inclined to disable all the service-related code in pg_ctl for Cygwin, and treat it just as we treat Unix.
