A slightly less drastical measure would be to set the
gtk-cursor-blink-timeout setting to some reasonable value of seconds:
* Time after which the cursor stops blinking, in seconds.
* The timer is reset after each user interaction.
* Setting this to zero has the same effect as setting
* #GtkSettings:gtk-cursor-blink to %FALSE.
* Since: 2.12
