Re: rxvt doesn't paste selections anymore?

$ rxvt --version
Usage v2.7.2 : (XPM,menubar,.Xdefaults)

$ cygcheck -s
    Cygwin DLL version info:
        DLL version: 1.3.12
        DLL epoch: 19
        DLL bad signal mask: 19005
        DLL old termios: 5
        DLL malloc env: 28
        API major: 0
        API minor: 54

Shift-Left-click pastes fine.  I copied the information out of an rxvt
terminal (Cygwin updated yesterday).

    C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -fn "Lucida Console-12" -sr -bg black -fg
grey -sl 1000 -cr red -vb -e bash --login

As a shortcut starts fine with the DOS box disappearing quickly.

Hope this helps,
