Why do we want that?  Is there a way to get previous behavior?

Sorry, I don't understand: w32 already implements the equivalent of
FOCUS_OUT_EVENT, but why is that relevant?  When no frame has focus,
Emacs on Windows doesn't blink the cursors already.

What am I missing?

And what is the other thing you changed?
