It's possible that the cursor does not reappear after pressing ^C during shutdown. In my case, I noticed this when pressing ^C after getting results from `pacman -F` -- this can reasonably reliably be triggered by issuing a file query and pressing ^C shortly after results are shown.
There are two reasons for this issue:
1. The graceful SIGINT handler is removed at the start of cleanup(), but the window from entering cleanup() to reaching exit() is non trivial. The main offender is FREELIST(pm_targets), which on my T14s takes >0.1s to execute. This means that if you are unlucky enough to press ^C while there, the cursor isn't coming back, because we haven't issued any command to show the cursor again yet, and the userspace signal handler is already blown away. 2. Moving console_cursor_show() to earlier in cleanup() only half solves the issue. While it's fine not to flush after _hiding_ the cursor, since it will at least make itself apparent before any other text reaches the screen, _showing_ the cursor must be followed by flushing stdout, because once the graceful SIGINT handler is gone, if you press ^C, no flush will be triggered (and thus there will be no cursor).
This fixes the issue by always starting out by showing the cursor again at cleanup() time. This means that no matter where we get caught at ^C, we will not end up leaving the terminal without its beloved ensign.
