Are you using Win32 or Cygwin Python?  I presume the Win32 one, because
it has "display issues" under rxvt.  So do other Win32 apps that write
directly to the console.

When I need to use Win32 Python, I run it directly under bash.  As long
as the CYGWIN environment variable contains "notty", then output should
show up.

I would like to use rxvt for everything too.  Unfortunately, it does
not seem to be possible...
