Is there _anything_ that can be done about the cursor shape in rxvt? That
_od-awful block cursor that obscures the character lying under it drives me
nuts. Past messages on this List seemed to indicate in my reading, that
this wasn't reconfigurable -- that we are stuck with it. That alone would
make me not be infavor of rxvt becoming the default Cygwin terminal --even
tho I am using Win98 (part of the time).
If there is nothing that can be done at run time, can you suggest a place
in the src code for me to start looking at, to change it at build time?
P.S. In case it isn't obvious to someone, what I would want to see instead
of the block cursor is a flashing underscore-bar (or even a static bar)
like in the native Win32 console.
Yes, it's really Sören, not Soren.
