I have a flashing block cursor set up because I find it very hard to see the normal _ underline cursor - expecially when searching through man
pages etc.

The problem comes when I run ncurses programs in screen. The cursor gets
reset to underline whenever I run those programs in screen.

Does anyone know a way around this? I have set up custom terminfo files
with tic. Would there be a setting that would affect ncurses programs

A famous Lisp Hacker noticed an Undergraduate sitting in front of a
Xerox 1108, trying to edit a complex Klone network via a browser.
Wanting to help, the Hacker clicked one of the nodes in the network
with the mouse, and asked "what do you see?"  Very earnestly, the
Undergraduate replied "I see a cursor."  The Hacker then quickly
pressed the boot toggle at the back of the keyboard, while
simultaneously hitting the Undergraduate over the head with a thick
Interlisp Manual.  The Undergraduate was then Enlightened.
