OK, there is indeed something wierd going on with TERM=linux.  Not as
you describe, but the screen fills with ;2cl; (or something like that)
and C-x C-c doesn't work.  I can't attach with strace.  This is Win98.

I have no problems with TERM=cygwin or TERM=vt200, for example:

TERM=cygwin emacs-nox -q
TERM=vt200 emacs-nox -q

But the default for rxvt is "xterm".  Why are you using "linux"?  Have
you tried using the default "xterm"?
