The vim editor likes to send it.  I just ran into this issue with the
new mintty whenever I edit in screen.  I ended up changing this line
in my .screenrc (which has been there for ages):

termcapinfo xterm 'vi=\E[?25l:ve=\E[34h\E[?25h:vs=\E[34l'

into this:

termcapinfo xterm 'vi=\E[?25l:ve=\E[34l\E[?25h:vs=\E[1 q'

That puts a blinking block into "vs" but I haven't found an app that
outputs that part yet (the tweak to "ve" makes it force a solid block
cursor, which is what I needed).
