No, I get the same behavior when I start Emacs with -q --no-site-file
and then type `M-x blink-cursor-mode'.

If so, then that appears to be the case.  I wonder what the fix is --
I saw only one reference to blinking cursor in the CVS src/ChangeLog
(Revision 1.2484) and it doesn't seem to be relevant.  Could the fix
be due to a more general change?  Has this bug been reported by anyone
else, or can anyone confirm it with Emacs 21.2.1?
