There are some known "tty" issues when running native Win32 programs
under Cygwin.  They typical manifest themselves under rxvt and (IIRC)
when CYGWIN=tty.  Try using bash (instead of rxvt) and CYGWIN=notty.

BTW, Cygwin Python does not have any of these issues.  If you don't need
any Win32 Python features, then you may want to use this version
