Thanks, this was helpful.

I can't see anything obviously wrong with your setup, other than rxvt 
doesn't work...

I uploaded a debug version of the MSYS runtime DLL, could you try it, 

1) Download
2) Make a backup copy of your msys-1.0.dll file.
3) Unpack the files over your MSYS installation.
4) Run: strace rxvt > strace.txt
5) Send me the strace.txt file.
