Description Bruce Dubbs 2014-03-14 07:14:06 UTC
Using kernel 3.13.3, the cursor is not present at the command line (login, bash prompt, etc).  

From dmesg:

When passing video=640x480 or 1024x768, everything is fine, but not at the monitor's native resolution of 1366x768.  There the cursor is invisible.

The cursor returns if the terminal is reset with 'echo -e \\033c', but only until the next command is issued.  Then the cursor disappears again.

Inside Xorg 7.7, everything is fine.
