You're welcome to disrespect hints at dwm level (resizehints=false) in
which case urxvtc will truly cover the full screen. Hints make sense
though, and not using them may mess up the terminal occasionally – this
has been of course argued about and discussed here a million times.

Iconising clients *might* be a solution, though I'm not certain whether
I'd be more scared than comforted *not* seeing another client from under
a non-fullscreen window (be it terminal or anything else).
