I've found rxvt to be slightly better than the Win32 console, but
still not satisfactory. The best I've come up with so far is to use
PuTTY to SSH to localhost. That sounds obscene (and perhaps it is)
but PuTTY is the only free Windows terminal thingy that I know of that
gets all the keys right.
There is a lot more discussion of these sorts of issues on the Emacs
Wiki; start at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?PuTTY.
In the practice of computing, where we have so much latitude for
making a mess of it, mathematical elegance is not a dispensable
luxury, but a matter of life and death.
