My emacs cursor has recently got a strange behaviour. When the cursor inverts the character under it, it first clears it with a black square, and the white character is shown one long second after. When moving the cursor, the character comes back instantly non-inverted.
When using a blinking cursor, the blink delay is much shorter that the "show character" one, so the character almost never appears. Disabling blink mode makes a usable emacs, but not too comfortable!
It seems independent from the font or the color theme (I use none anyway).
Any idea? Thanks,
The same story.
May be it was some gtk update who is responsible for it?
No problem here. Could it be a video driver issue? I use nvidia 190.53-1 with the latest (x86_64) kernel26 126.96.36.199-1.
To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.
No sign of trouble here either. Does the problem persist with 'emacs -Q'?
x86_64. xf86-video-intel 2.10.0-1 and kernel26 188.8.131.52-1.

I don't think so, I didn't update the video driver (xf86-video-intel) for a months.
However, I installed emacs-otf instead of emacs, and everything works well now.
