I checked `blink-cursor's value.  It is currently set to t.

But I just discovered something else.

If I open a shell window, the cursor is down at the end of the prompt, and I hit
the cntrl key (nothing else), the cursor toggles on and off almost 100% of the
time. Sometimes it stays on if on or off it it was off, but I'd guess 98% of the
time it toggles on and off.....huuummmm????

BTW, it STAYS off until I type something.

Aha!  I just tried the same in this *mail* buffer.  Same thing happens.

Aha Aha!  I just tried the same in this *mail* buffer with the shift key.  
*Same thing happens*.

But now I realize my cursor is not blinking at all.  Just stays solid.

So I just set the blink-cursor to nil.

Same thing here too.

Does any of this help?  I did not notice this in v 21.1....

Wait a second, I'll try it right now in 21.1...

21.1 cursor blinks.  I can not get it to go away.

Thanks for looking into this.
