For a data point, I invoke the Cygwin server with -multiwindow and
-clipboard, and I can cut and paste between Windows and Gnome
applications in both directions.

To speculate wildly about your troubles with Rxvt, I wonder if there are
problems mapping the multiple X selections to the single Windows
clipboard.  Can you cut and paste with gnome-terminal?  Have you tried
restarting the Windows ClipBook service?
