Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

On the Linux console, (blink-cursor-mode -1) has no effect -- the
cursor keeps on blinking.  This is very annoying because I explicitly
set my cursor to a solid red non-blinking cursor from my login shell.
Entering Emacs resets this, and quitting Emacs leaves my cursor a
blinking thin line.

This is what I use, in case it is of interest.

# If on console, change cursor colour according to
# /usr/src/linux/Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt
# Reset using echo -e '\033[?2c'
if [ $TERM = 'linux' -a $SHELL == '/bin/bash' ] ; then
    echo -e '\033[?17;0;64c'
