I suggest to not use the xargs style. Currently, I almost cannot find a good 
"find.exe" and "xrags.exe" to work well together.

What I currently used is, using the binary folder comes from msysgit, which 
should be the find.exe and grep.exe from msys sub system.

At the same time, do not use xargs style for rgrep.

(require 'grep)
 'grep-find-use-xargs 'exec)

use 'exec style, which you can get more information from grep-find-use-xargs 

The currently problem is, this kind of combination is very slow if you use it 
to find deep directory tree. However, it at least can use without any problem.
