I'd be concerned about covering the inside of the window without removing it from the outside also. That would leave you with a piece of glass waiting to be broken, but needing to be periodically inspected to see if it is broken. Then when it breaks (more a "when" than an "if" with renters) it will be a pain to replace without being able to get to both sides.

Personally, I'd go with the glass block idea or with replacing the rotted wood combined with periodic inspection to make sure the water is draining correctly and not puddling up.

Perhaps another off the wall idea - is this a second bathroom? Is there another shower in the house? If so, how about removing the shower head and making this a bath tub only?
