Well, this is fine as long as the rxvt package is installed :)
However the current installer doesn't care about this too :) Maybe
a new page asking for a preferred shell/console would be useful.
This will instruct setup.exe to include the shell/console package
exclusively and there will be no more errors of the type - "clicking
on cygwin icon produces a just quick flash".
However :) This were just my .04 euro cents :)
