A rogue "?25l" there. I also get a lot of flickering of the cursor at
"resolving dependencies" after this patch (which is not present before).
util-common.c: In function ‘console_hide_cursor’:
util-common.c:110:10: warning: non-ISO-standard escape sequence, '\e'
110 | printf("\e[?25l");
(and two other places)
\e is a GNU shortcut. Use \x1B instead.
