I guess it's more about the configuration of tmux. There is in fact a
cursor style setting sequence that mintty newly supports.
Please make a terminal log and check whether ^[[34h (ESC [ 3 4 h)
appears during tmux initialization. If so, however, the assumption is
that tmux sends it on purpose, so the blame is on tmux :/ My tmux
configuration does not change the cursor, like Roger's, by the way.
About an option to suppress dynamic changes of cursor style, that might
indeed be useful. I assume, though, that it should uniformly also
suppress the DEC sequence (DECSCUSR). Or should different cursor
attributes be addressable separately? (shape, blinking, colour??, even

I have uploaded mintty 2.9.0 with the following changes:
No good deed goes unpunished, I guess. One of these changes makes the
cursor come out as static underline instead of blinking block whenever
I'm going into my usual screen or tmux session. I have not yet figured
out what exactly is changing the cursor, but once I'm in screen nor tmux
I can't change it for whatever reason (it might actually change and gets
reset quickly enough so I can't see it). Dropping out of the session I
can send the escape sequence to switch back to blinking block (or
whatever other cursor available), but reconnecting into the session
brings the static underline back. The best I have managed so far by
compiling my own terminfo database is to get a static block cursor (not
blinking) for a local session, but it breaks down as soon as I log into
a remote system again.
Can there be an option please to keep the cursor just as I've set it up
in the options?
I just did the same install and do not observe what you do.
Everything seems fine regarding the cursor type.
One thing though is that I have not used mintty before.
Do you think that my fresh ".minttyrc" file is different than your's?
Just a thought......
Design proposals welcome.
