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).
