appears to be the same exe...
Rxvt v2.7.10 - released: 26 MARCH 2003

Definitely changes the cursor color and scrollbar location on my terms.
Not sure about selectstyle, i use the default and am happy with
it(although i seem to recall running across a definition while googling
re this yesterday).

I also did a quick change to background and foreground colors -- they
were picked up too.

Are you explicitely setting values in the call to open a new term that
are overriding those in .Xdefaults?
My normal means of opening rxvt terminals is via shortcuts that equate
to some variant of:

  rxvt.exe  -sr -sl 2500  -geometry 80x25 -sb -fg green -bg midnightblue
-fn "lucida console-13-bold" -e bash --rcfile /home/rthompso/.bashrc

The explicitely given parameters will override those in .Xdefaults.
(Using different color schemes for different hosts makes it easy for me
to determine with a 'look' what host the current terminal is connected

$ ls -lrt ~/.Xdefaults
