Hang on, I'm wondering how this is supposed to be a bug.  When you start
a local Cygwin shell, the cygwin.bat script sets $PATH for you, so that
it contains /bin.  You could easily start rxvt the same way.  I'm not
exactly happy to create a special Cygwin complete.tcsh script, which
diverges that much from the upstream version, just because the shell is
called with a wrongly set $PATH.
