This does not work unless you also do

gtk_text_freeze (GtkText *text)
  g_return_if_fail (text != NULL);
  g_return_if_fail (GTK_IS_TEXT (text));

-  text->freeze_count++;  
+  if (!(text->freeze_count++) && GTK_WIDGET_REALIZED (text))
+    undraw_cursor (text, FALSE);

However, it seems to me that draw/undraw_cursor() do their own level
accounting and so my initial patch amounts to nearly the same, with
less modification.

I felt more comfortable providing the simple patch which surely does
the job. Even with just the above few additions, I am uncertain if the
cursor is cleared and drawn correctly in all circumstances. Of course,
this is a result of me not knowing the source that well.

But one way or the other - as long as it goes into 1.2.7 I will be
