The Help menu of Emacs tells you to say
C-h n
for Emacs News.

This will give you, among others
** When using a windowing terminal, each Emacs window now has a cursor
of its own.  By default, when a window is selected, the cursor is
solid; otherwise, it is hollow.  The user-option
`cursor-in-non-selected-windows' controls how to display the
cursor in non-selected windows.  If nil, no cursor is shown, if
non-nil a hollow box cursor is shown.

Anyhow, I marvel at how people can imagine something like this
happening accidentally.
