This is untrue. I just discovered that if you wait long enough, the
input is echoed and the rxvt becomes normal again.
If you type another CTRL-C, you get a fresh prompt, but still no input
If you hit CTRL-C *again*, then everything you typed gets passed
through to the shell and acted upon!
(I.e. the input hasn't been flushed by the CTRL-C, and there is some
process/thread that ignores the interrupt and refuses to echo the input
as it occurs.)
