Unfortunately, setting the blink-cursor-mode to not blinking does not solve
this problem for me.  Now emacs will not hang if it is just sitting there
idle, as it was doing, but it will hang while typing into one of its
buffers.  The hang is the same as before, seems to be stuck in some spin
lock somehow.  So this work around only partly "works".
