Re: rxvt, once again...
RXVT has it's own distinct advantages and many Cygwin users prefer it.
Initial placement _is_ under user control, if you go to the launching
shortcut's Properties dialog, Layout pane, uncheck "Let system position
window". Then you can enter the coordinates of the window's top-left corner
in the "Window Position" numeric fields.

That's interesting, but what's the advantage of rxvt over opening
cygwin/bash in a Windows command window, where all the formatting
options (except initial placement I grant you) are available from the
prompt window properties?
