Block cursor. The hidden wide_caret setting is not a block, it's an underline.

I'm using wide_caret and all I get is a slightly more bold underline. (Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit.) Is this what you intend? It's a very subtle difference and still difficult to spot, for example, when doing a text search. Brace matching also gets confusing because the same underline (only not bold) is used. Please, a block cursor, ala vim/gvim is what a lot of us are comfortable with.
