Ok, I've set it in the main windows environment. Now from CDM.EXE

Because you've misread the manpage. "+sk" turns OFF "scroll-on-keypress".That's my fault !!! Now it's working perfectly :D
You want "-sk" instead. This is not Cygwin-specific.
It's a Windows codepage issue. rxvt uses the system-default codepage.Oh yeah, I've red /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/rxvt-20050409.README and found
mention about the font "Lucida ConsoleP".
You'll probably need a customized font with the right characters in the
I've downloaded from http://home.online.no/~aageli/luconP.ttf, installed
in Windows, and run a shortcut with:
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -bg black -fg white -si -sk -sw -sr -sl 65535 -tn
rxvt-cygwin-native -fn "Lucida ConsoleP-22" -ls -e /usr/bin/bash --login
