The first advice is to use the recommended support email address which
is [hidden email].

cygserver and therefore ipc is working okay. just the console output is
annoying, better is to log to a file or the eventlog.

your template db could not be created, probably due to file permission
problems at base/1
did you try to install this as service, initdb it as service and then
initdb it as user? This will not work.
You'd need to check your perms for the database user to read/write to
$PGDATA

   /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql install
   pg_ctl start -l /var/log/posgresql.log
or
   /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql initdb

is usually better than simple

   /usr/sbin/initdb  -D /usr/share/postgresql/data

The second advice is to look at your postmaster log and
post your problem as described in http://cygwin.com/problems.html
