I have exactly the same problem.  English version, brand new Win XP laptop, 
running using the shortcut that gets installed by the installer.  The command 
that gets executed in Windows is:

"C:\Program Files\GNU Octave 2.1.36\bin\run.exe" rxvt.exe --keysym.0xFF50 '^a' 
--keysym.0xFF57 '^e' --keysym.0xFFFF '^f^h' -fn "Lucida Console-12" -tn linux 
-title "GNU Octave 2.1.36" -geometry 80x25 -sl 400 -sr -e /bin/

I think I downloaded from sourceforge but I'm not sure.
