You got it! I use the one from Cygwin menu and the -tn rxvt-cygwin is
to be blamed. I changed it to rxvt only and it works perfectly.
Before this brand new install, I used shortcuts that I wrote myself
and there was possibly not this -tn thing.

Can we correct the shortcut in the Start Menu/Cygwin so that nobody
has the same problem in the future?
