I believe gnome-terminal blinks its block cursor by default (but I
don't know any easy way of checking what the default settings in gnome
are, so I can't state this with 100% certainty -- anyway, google turns
up FAQ entries for gnome-terminal describing how to turn off the
blinking cursor etc).  Other gtk apps, mozilla etc. certainly do,
using a bar cursor.

Anyway, we've already had this flame war.

If some people are really physically repulsed by it to the degree Luc
professes (I admit, I suspect hyperbole), an option in the option menu
seems reasonable, and certainly not worth _another_ long flame war.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.
