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
I would like to use rxvt for everything too. Unfortunately, it does
