What causes rxvt to switch to displaying characters with lots of space
in between them?
The font it's using.
I heard that there's some interaction between X11-mode rxvt setup and plain-window
rxvt setup. I don't think I've installed any X11 libraries, servers, or even
fonts since rxvt was working right, but now rxvt is acting up again.
You have to check what's the default font  or if you changed it .
There was a thread on the list, long ago, about the default being a font
that comes with the X11 fonts. I'm not sure what's the case right now,
but a widely-spaced font sounds like a font that you have installed but
lacks the necessary hints (that's a X11 font term).
 /etc/defaults/etc/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt or URxvt;
