I assume you're talking about the cygutils ('normal cygwin' + X) build
of rxvt.  If that's the case, I *think* I've seen similar behavior --
but since I normally cut-n-paste only between rxvt windows and only
rarely between native and rxvt, it hasn't bugged me enough to track it

I've never investigated it even that thoroughly.  I almost sure that
you've discovered a clue, but for the life of me I don't know what it
means.... :-(
