As I said, 'pscp' isn't a Cygwin application so it does not understand
the pty that 'rxvt' uses.  'pscp' should still work fine for you in the
"cygwin shell" if it worked before.  This indicates that you do no have
"tty" set in your CYGWIN environment variable (see the User's Guide for
details on the CYGWIN environment variable).  If you were to set it as
described in the User's Guide, you would see the same problem from the
"cygwin shell" as well.
