The problem is if you load by entering command mode of GRUB; for some reason
in this code path GRUB was leaving the cursor disabled. I have added
code to ForthOS to explicitly initialize the cursor, so you'll see this
quirk go away in the next release. If you boot from a menu (on your disk
or the CDROM), you wouldn't hit this bug.
