Tcsh and rxvt

Hey all.

I don't really know if this is Cygwin specific, but I run into strange
problems with tcsh under rxvt (both updated yesterday, together with all
other packages).

First problem: It seems that the man page for rxvt is broken. The names
of the colors (the content of the missing file rgb.txt which is
mentioned in the manpage) aren't included and "M-x manual-entry ret
rxvt" in my XEmacs says

/usr/bin/tbl:./rxvt.tbl:244: `.' not last character on line
/usr/bin/tbl:./rxvt.tbl:244: giving up on this table
/usr/bin/tbl:./rxvt.tbl:663: `.' not last character on line
/usr/bin/tbl:./rxvt.tbl:663: giving up on this table
1(RXVT)                      X Tools                      1(RXVT)

Number two: I've got problems with ANSII colors. I say 
set prompt="%{\033[32m%}[%{\033[33m%}%~%{\033[32m%}]%{\033[0m%}$ "
but in rxvt colors are much too bright. The brown is yellow, it just
sucks. In cmd.exe all looks ok.

Number three: If I say 
set prompt="%{\033[32m%}[%{\033[33m%}%~%{\033[32m%}]%{\033[0m%}\n$ "
so that it looks even more like the Cygwin default bash shell, I get
strange behavior, e.g the home key which works nice normally now results
in a newline and backspace doesn't work, too.
My ~/.tcshrc at the moment consists only of 
set color
set colorcat
set prompt="%{\033[32m%}[%{\033[33m%}%~%{\033[32m%}]%{\033[0m%}$ "

I start rxvt from bash (running in cmd.exe) with 
rxvt -fn fixedsys -fb fixedsys -pixmap Angler.xpm -sr -fg 7 -tn rxvt -e /usr/bin/tcsh.exe -l &

in rxvt set returns
