Re: rxvt in native mode, widely spaced characters

So my question is why does the default .../app-defaults/Rxvt specify

not toss them altogether?
Because they ARE included in the cygwin-xfree distribution (just not
installed into the *windows* font area). So the provided defaults work
great with rxvt in X mode, and look a LOT better than the *true* default
for X mode, the 'fixed' font.
I've been meaning to change (downgrade) the app-defaults/Rxvt file to
something that works okay with stock windows when using rxvt in native
mode, even if it looks like crap in X mode -- the next time I make an
rxvt package. So far, there hasn't been a reason (above and beyond this
configuration issue) to do so.
