Re: rxvt problems on win98

Okay, I just did an update on all my packages and specified "reinstall"
for rxvt, just to be safe.  The behavior no longer exists, so that's good.
However, I now remember why I was using an older version of rxvt: the
one that is distributed with Cygwin is the "with a console" version
(note the window that briefly flashes on the screen before the actual
rxvt window comes up).  When Steve did his original port, he also
did a "no-console" experimental build, which is nice because the
flashing window isn't there, and it seems to work fine otherwise.

I tried reverting back to this version of rxvt and everything seems
great -- no flickering and no CPU-peg upon resizing.  So I guess the
problem was somewhere in bash(?).

I may have missed this discussino, but has anyone considered using the
no-console build of rxvt in the distro?
