Another thought--make sure you're running the
installed msys.bat and not just bin/rxvt.exe .
I did the latter by accident and the path
didn't get set up correctly, so weird things
happened. Example: I have a native win32 'less'
on my windows path, and it was getting called
in an rxvt session, which of course is not good.
I wouldn't have though of doing this, except
I read the documentation again and saw

So far so good.

Well, there's a blue 'M' icon next to rxvt.exe,
so I clicked it. Oops. Maybe it would be clearer
to say something like
If you have Windows Explorer open, you can also
start MSYS by double clicking msys.bat . Please
don't click the MSYS icons here, though--they
won't do what you expect.
