I'm not sure if XEmacs does this too, but GNU Emacs used to set the cursor to "visible" when it fires up. This is what sets the cursor to a large blinking box in FreeBSD consoles. In CVS versions of GNU Emacs this has been fixed with the 'visible-cursor tunable. If this is set to non-nil, the cursor is still set to a large blinking box. If set to nil, then the cursor remains the same as before (my preferred setting).
