Gentlemen, in good old tty mode, outside of X windows,
I have in .bashrc
if test $DISPLAY$EMACS; then :; else
    #VGA-softcursor.txt says to get red non-blinking block prompt
    echo -e '\033[?17;0;64c'

however, after entering emacs, one gets a prompt blinking at a rate
that says "I've got to go to the bathroom now, please".

The unfairness in our story is that after exiting emacs, our solid red
cursor that says "Ommmm" is replaced by the emacs 'where's the john,
urgent' prompt for the remainder of our shell session.

Ok, maybe that was the original login prompt. In that case I sort of
apologize to emacs...
