Been using it for ~12hrs straight now with no (new) problems.  Thanks as
always Chuck.

As to the non-(new) problems: Screwy copy and paste.  I've been having this
thing where copy/paste works fine for a while, then for no observable reason
starts to act up.  Multiple installations.  Generally it starts with having
to try to do a paste multiple times before it does anything, and eventually
programs start throwing errors saying they're unable to talk to the
clipboard (*any* program, not just Cygwin ones).  I figured it was my
...ecks... server, which until now had not been the Cygwin/ecks one, but
with the recently renewed activity I've switched to that one and I appear to
be having the same problems, so now I'm starting to suspect rxvt.  A little
Googling didn't turn up any similar reports.  Known issue?  Suspected issue?
I don't know how clipboard responsibilities are divided between rxvt and/or
the server, so I'm not sure who to blame or where to look here.
