Actually, this is inaccurate: blink-cursor-timer-function, which runs
off a regular (non-idle) timer, sometimes calls blink-cursor-suspend,
which cancels the blink-cursor-idle-timer.

But this looks perfectly normal, and indeed if Michael's advice runs
when the idle timer expired, it might find that the idle timer that
runs was already deleted from timer-idle-list, because we invoke the
timers from a copy of the list.  If this is what happens, then what
Michael's code reveals is an artifact of a perfectly normal and
expected operation.  I cannot see how this could cause more than one
blink-cursor-idle-timer be in the list at the same time.

So this still stands.
