We consider a variant of rational term rewriting as first introduced by Corradini et al., i.e., we consider rewriting of (infinite) terms with a finite number of different subterms. Motivated by computability theory, we show a number of decidability results related to the rewrite relation and prove an effective version of a confluence theorem for orthogonal systems.
