OK, to follow up from my own post:

The problem was simply this - I had included xclip.el. However it does

 (add-hook 'terminal-init-xterm-hook 'turn-on-xclip)

This was not triggered in my version of urxvt. I dont know the details
as to why. So, and thanks to dim in #emacs, I went back and call the
the interprogram function set up


et voila. Working just fine. I guess I should go and add this to the
hundreds of threads on the subject out there ;) So trivial after all

Hope this helps someone else,
