I wonder if rxvt doesn't bother using the resource manager and just
tries to look in certain files. The man page seems to suggest this. 
I'm also having an rxvt resource problem, but with a different file...
rxvt will read ~/.Xresources, but not /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt,
even though it seems to know about it:

alr3-e~>strings `which rxvt`|tail -10
