Actually, cmd.exe in rxvt seems to work 99% ok. ('cls' doesn't work; 
excuse me if I'm not heartbroken by that. 'clear', i.e. /bin/clear, 
does.) The main example I can think of being broken is the 'net' command 
which is unable to process input if run from a Cygwin pty, and there is 
also there is a known bug with Microsoft's pdb generator. CUI 
applications that don't need input (and seriously, what applications 
would those be?) should be fine.
