This applies only to the modern theme: in all dialog input-fields (including location bar), the cursor seems to have wrong blinking "logic". it starts invisible when moved / other widget focused, and then starts to blink. quit annoying with some dialogs (e.g. file->new->address book card) when you press tab a few times, and the cursor is about half a second invisible.
A whole half a second? I didn't see it disappear for long enough for me to wonder where it went. And the box with the focus is outlined, and that changes instantly, so there's no ambiguity about which text box now has focus. (Although it did seem to blink only while actually hovering over the dialouge box. Is that a bug or a feature?)
I know its a minor issue, but although the focused inputfields are framed bold you dont know where the cursor is _exactly_ (that means between which characters, if had moved it previously) Perhaps half a second is a little long but with slow cursor blinking speed ... And finally it shouldnt be hard to fix (classic theme behaves correcly)
Btw. "my" cursor does blink all the time (doesnt need to be hovered), using windows. Perhaps you're using a windowmanager with different focusing behavior? (Focus on "mousemoveover")

this sounds like another bug but I can't find it; maybe Simon knows of such a bug?
Summary: cursor blinking behavior in modern theme → caret blinking behavior in modern theme (off-cycle?)
