Could something the following happen?

1.  blink-cursor-idle-timer is bound to the only idle blink timer,
    everything is fine.

2.  timer-idle-list is `copy-sequenc'ed.

3.  The idle timer is canceled.  `blink-cursor-idle-timer' is now bound
to nil.

4.  The old timer from 2. is called with timer-event-handler.
Note that as a side effect, the timer is pushed back to timer-idle-list,
but `blink-cursor-idle-timer' is still bound to nil.

5.  `blink-cursor-check' is run.  It sees that `blink-cursor-idle-timer'
is nil and starts another idle timer.


Michael.
