In addition to the other issues, I forgot to mention that although I have set 
the Cursor Flash Time to No blinking in Interface tab in TQt Configuration, and 
this successfully stops the cursor from blinking in KWrite and KEdit, the 
cursor still blinks, sometimes, in GEdit.  Specifically, it is blinking when 
you open GEdit, or return focus to GEdit after looking at another window, but 
if you don't type anything, it stops blinking after about 9 seconds, (9 
blinks).  Then if you type something, the cursor blinks for about 9 seconds 
after you stop typing, then it stops blinking.  I would certainly find this 
behaviour a nuisance, if I used GEdit.
