Windows has a notion of a "console window".  rxvt, xterm, ssh, and pretty
much any other Cygwin program that doesn't allocate an explicit console
window uses ptys to emulate console output.  Some Windows programs cannot
understand ptys, and thus don't work properly via ssh, or in rxvt.  So the
OP's need may be valid.
