The call in the script was:
/usr/bin/urxvt -e "/usr/bin/vim $1"

As to answering your specific question, well, I don't know. This terminal 
gives me problems on some hosts. 
For instance, logged into dreamhost: 

[guilder]$ vim index.php | less
Vim: Warning: Output is not to a terminal
WARNING: terminal is not fully functional
- (press RETURN)
Terminal entry not found in terminfo
'rxvt-unicode' not known. Available builtin terminals are:
defaulting to 'ansi'
Then it opens the file, but I can't actually edit it. Not sure if this is 
what you were getting at. Frankly, I'm still confused about most internal 
aspects of unicode encoding; I just try to use it whenever I can, because 
otherwise I often find I have to translate to it. Hence the unicode 
terminal. On the other hand, I also often have to translate to 8859-1 
because some program or another balks on unicode. Did I mention I'm over my 
head here? Here's the term program as it appears in portage, whence I gots
