I can confirm redraw funkiness on Windows 2000 Pro SP3.
I'm seeing window frame redraws offset several hundred pixels from the
proper location. I routinely make my windows as high as the terminal, and
the displaced frame was drawn with only a horizontal offset from the proper
location. The body of the window, including new contents were drawn in the
correct place, however when uncovering the window via ALT-Tab switching the
redraw of the newly re-exposed areas of the window occurred in the offset
location. However, if I minimize the window in front and expose RXVT's
window that way, it redraws correctly.
I'm sure if I kept playing around I could find more fascinating symptoms,
but I'm losing interest. I didn't try any resizing, for example. Color "ls"
output seemed OK, but I use it so rarely I probably wouldn't notice if
there was something wrong unless it was gross...or grotesque.
Given the behavior I'm seeing, I probably couldn't use RXVT. I only
installed the update to confirm some of the symptoms reported here, since I
rarely use RXVT.
This is the invocation of RXVT I use (from a shortcut in my QuickLaunch bar):
D:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -g 110x89+485+-1
-bg #dddddd -fg #000000
-fn "Lucida ConsoleP-11"
-sr -sl 5000 -tn rxvt -vb
-e /bin/bash --login -i
If the maintainer or anyone attempting to debug this symptom would like any
specific tests run, just let me know.

I downloaded the latest rxvt version and I can confirm that the cut&paste
problem has been fixed on WinNT, as mentionned in a previous email from
Steve. Thanks Steve.
However, I noticed that with the new rxvt, when I am running vim under it,
I get color problems after using it for a while. The rxvt background
suddenly becomes all white. It is easly reproducable by resizing rxvt while
vim is running; just play a bit with it (have a file loaded). Also, the
scroll bar of the rxvt does not redraw properly. And once, after playing
with the rxvt like I describe, the whole WinNT environment went crazy.
Windows would not redraw other applications properly; I had to reboot.
After rebooting, I tried again the resizing issue and its still goes on,
thus I suspect that the problem lies with rxvt.
I run vim with blue background and white foreground. My rxvt normal
background is black.
