Cygwin rxvt

Cygwin is great, but the standard Cygwin Bash Shell shortcut isn't. I need something more powerful than the DOS window. I want something more like an xterm, with easy copy and paste, and a recognized $TERM for emacs and vi sessions.

rxvt gives me what I want. I found this command line somewhere a while ago, and it make rxvt do pretty much what I want:

$ rxvt.exe -sl 1500 -fn "Lucida Console-12" -bg black -fg grey -sr -e bash --login -i

I add a shortcut to C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe on my Windows desktop, and put that command line as the shortcut's target. Now I'm happy.
