scroll bar (-sb)

I start the xwin server with the startxwin.bat file that comes with the 
package. I have made no modifications to it.
I also start xterm windows with the following command:

C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\run.exe -p /usr/X11R6/bin xterm -display -ls -sl 1000 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg yellow -bg black -e 
/usr/bin/bash -l

However, when I am using an xterm window, the scrollbar does display on 
the right side of the window, but it doesn't allow me to scroll up or down.

Is there an additional setting that I should make to either the server 
or the terminal window to enable the scrollbar to be useful?
