I am going to respond to both you (John) and Pavel here. I can run rxvt
from both a cmd shell (yes, I am using Win2K) and from a bash prompt. I do
not get any error messages here. The only place I have a problem is
when I modify my cygwin.bat file.
I don't think that this is a problem with finding the cygwin1.dll since
that throws up a dialog box, telling me that that is the problem. But,
doing a search on my C drive for cygwin1.dll I find it only in c:\cygwin\bin
Here is my current cygwin.bat
rem bash --login -i
rxvt -sr -sl 2500 -sb -e bash --login -i
There was a start before the rxvt command, but I removed it to see if I
could get any more debug info. I could not.
