:)) Except comenting the bash line and adding rxvt do you modify you
cygwin.bat in any other fashion ? Is the chdir line still there ? does
it change to the approapriate dir where rxvt.exe is found ? Is
cygwin1.dll in this directory - if not is it in your PATH ?
What message is printed if you start rxvt.exe from a console window
and not from the cygwin.bat ?
