Wow. Didn't know that. I seldom use MSYS and its rxvt. I assume rxvt's
window isn't a console window, it's a normal "graphics" window that
just happens to contain only text, handled by the rxvt application
itself. (I.e. it's like xterm etc on X11. A Unix equivalent of console
windows would be built-in text-only windows in the X server, or
Rxvt itself presumably passes some pipes for stdout/stderr to
applications it starts and then shows whatever comes through those
Few end-users have rxvt, though.
