I'm not having problems creating or moving the windows. The problem occurs 
when I switch which desktop is displayed.

Can you create an rxvt window on each desktop, put some content into them, 
and then using the virtual desktops display switch which desktop is 
displayed? Don't touch the rxvt windows, just switch around among your 
desktops. If you also have the problem it will eventually result in all 
the rxvt windows being blank without you touching them.
