OK, I am surprised to only see it now. In my previous Emacs that I
compiled from source, I can't seem to remember it has blinking cursor.

However would you agree with the following principle? If the cursor type
is a thin vertical line, it should blink; if it is a huge block, it is
redundant (annoying) to blink. I checked a few applications such as
firefox, gedit, kate and openoffice3 and this seems to be the case
although I noted that gvim has blinking block cursor with higher
blinking frequency than emacs.

So how about turn the blinking off for Emacs 23.2?

Best wishes,
