   Never mind; I just read through /usr/doc/Cygwin/rxvt-2.7.2.README and realized
   that Rational had set the environment variable 
   	set DISPLAY=:0
   	rxvt -e bash --login -i

This also works:
  rxvt -display :0 -e bash --login -i

I have my display set to so that ssh X11 port forwarding works.
