Setting PS1 to:
PS1="\[\e]0;\h:\w\007\]$ "

Gets you the host and dir in the title bar with a $ prompt.

You should be able to use any color in rgb.txt, as well as specifying
the color as #rrggbb where rr is the red amount in hex, gg green, etc.

The pre-built rxvt in Cygwin, is only configured with one type of
scrollbar enabled.  That might be the problem.  I never really messed
around too much with the others.
