On SuSE 9.2, ncurses (and xt5250) does blink.  You can see it with the
test pgm mentioned below.

Curiously, if I open two xt5250 sessions for two different iSeries
machines, they blink at *different* rates.  Strange but true!  Then if I
open a third session, the new session blinks at the faster rate, and the
two old sessions both blink at the slower rate, sometimes in unison, and
sometimes alternating.  I guess some people have too much time on their
hands :-)
