term input messed up under cygwin with win32 svn

using
svn win32 0.26 binary distro (not cygwin compiled)
latest cygwin

I'm getting weird behavior when svn brings up the commit mesg editor.
When svn brings up SVN_EDITOR (set to either cygwin's vim or nano), my
text input doesn't go to the editor, rather it goes to the console window
- yet I can see the editor's text. pretty crazy weird. It works fine
if I use notepad though since it doesn't share the same term window.
I've tried this under cmd.exe as well as rxvt -- cmd.exe plain or with
bash or tcsh, rxvt with bash or tcsh.

I think the problem is my cygwin term settings but I don't know what
since it works great with CVS.

Any ideas what could mess up the term like this? It's almost as if vim or
nano was started backgrounded and while display their interface, text
input doesn't go to them.

I'd like to compile svn for cygwin, but configure had problems finding
libxml/parser.h (which is actually on my system). I'm hoping the problem
goes away when using cygwin svn... too bad cygwin doesn't have svn
binaries. anyone have a svn-cygwin-compiling howto?
