[Someone suggested I post this here; I don't read this mailing list
except from the archives, so my apologies if this is already known
or dealt with.]

My system is a 386DX-20 with 387, wd1007 + ESDI disk, anonymous
CGA graphics card.

When the system boots I get an underline cursor until the NetBSD
kernel boots, at which point I get NO cursor. Currently I have
recompiled the kernel with "FAT_CURSOR" which gives a charcter
size block cursor. This wasn't a problem under -0.9 since the
"FAT_CURSOR" option was always defined in pccons.c. [There was
a nice note next to it which said some machines lost their
cursors if it wasn't there. Looks like someone deleted that
define without solving the problem first. I'd try to sort it
out myself, but I'm currently busy upgrading a WD7000 driver to
-current from -0.9]
