 Sylvain, please remove your digital signature - your messages get signalled
as "untrusted" by Outlook.
 I *won't* set you up as trusted whatever you say.

Back on subject:
 The attached files might help you a bit.
They have 'enabled' my eight bit chars.

.Xdefaults - makes rxvt behave in a sane manner (IMO ;-)
.inputrc - enables eight bit clean stuff.
.profile - replaces "/bin/ls" with a shell function that displays 8-bit

NOTE: These are verbatim copies of my files as they are right now;
You WILL have to remove/change some lines in .profile .

I do expect it to be possible to move the key bindings for Home and End keys
for rxvt from .inputrc into .Xdefaults - but I have not yet figured that
out. They are rxvt/X11/W11 dependent so they do not belong in .profile IMO.

IMHO this one is useful too...
Assuming win98 and at least 1024x768 pixels on screen:

*) Change the "Program to run" item in the cygwin.bat properties
     to read something like this.
    C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM /E:30720 /c C:\Program\cygwin\cygwin.bat
*) Change cygwin.bat properties to make it run in a "Minimized" window.
*) change the last line in CYGWIN.BAT to read
    bash -c 'rxvt -e /usr/bin/bash --login -i'
