I have personally been using puttycyg here(or to be exact a homemade

for optimal use.Seems to me the more "Cygwin" solution would still be to simply use
rxvt. It's comes with Cygwin though you have to select it specifically
in setup.exe. rxvt is much like xterm so it pays attention to
~/.Xdefaults. rxvt is resizeable like a regular terminal emulator and
catches SIGWINCH and adjusts accordingly. rxvt also does "normal
selection" and not that boxy selection of the Windows console. rxvt is
fully configurable as far as colors and fonts just like an X app. But,
rxvt will use Windows widgets if DISPLAY is not set because an X server
is not running. So, IOW you don't even need to start a heavy X server to
use rxvt! Finally, since you seem to be concerned with it, rxvt uses
pty's, which is a problem with some applications that expect no ttys
(notably IBM/Rational's cleartool).
That way I can use putty as a normal term and when I need to ssh, I
just use the normal ssh cygwin client from a putty term.
So again, there's no "additional" separate package to find, in your case
- home make, install and otherwise nurture - just another Cygwin package
that works well with all of the Cygwin environment.
You should try rxvt and see if you like it...
