What if you add the -Q switch to the command line in the properties of
that shortcut? does the problem still happen?

I don't think this should matter.

The same idea I already mentioned: what port of RCS are you using?
Can it, by chance, be an old DOS port?  What do you see if you
right-click on rcsdiff.exe and co.exe in the Windows Explorer, and select
Properties? -- do you see a Program tab there?
