Hi! I get a problem as title.
My ConEmu version is ConEmuPack.180318(portable).
And I use mingw-get-setup.exe to install MinGW and msys.

The default {Bash::MinGW bash} task setting is as bellow:
set CHERE_INVOKING=1 & set "PATH=C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin;%PATH%" & %ConEmuBaseDirShort%\conemu-msys-32.exe -new_console:p C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\bash.exe --login -i -new_console:C:"C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.ico"
When I new a console use {Bash::MinGW bash} task, the cursor disappeare.
But I new a console use {Shells::cmd} will not.

I also download ConEmuPack.161206(portable), the default {Bash::MinGW bash} task setting is as bellow:
set CHERE_INVOKING=1 & C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\bash.exe --login -i -new_console:C:"C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.ico"
Both ConEmuPack.180318(portable) and ConEmuPack.161206(portable) will correct when new a console with this setting.

But this setting also has problem for me.
I use ssh to login linux, and my linux's locale is zh_CN.UTF-8. So I add the chcp utf-8 setting in the ConEmu's Environment setting.
When use ConEmuPack.161206(portable) default {Bash::MinGW bash} task setting, both in ConEmuPack.180318(portable) and ConEmuPack.161206(portable), ConEmu will block forever when print Chinese!
For example, after I login my centos use ssh, and I use ls command to list the file and dir, if there is a chinese file name or dir name, ConEmu will block forever!
But use ConEmuPack.180318(portable) default {Bash::MinGW bash} task setting in ConEmuPack.180318(portable) will not lead to this result, it can print Chinese correctly! The only problem is the cursor is disappeare!

I hope there is a solution to this problem.

I think ConEmu issue tracker is wrong place to ask.
ConEmu hides cursor when console application asks for it. Check your bash profile.

To ensure, you may turn on ANSI logging and check for cursor modification sequences.

Hello, I turn on the logging and the log info is as bellow:

"C:\Users\acer\Downloads\ConEmuPack.180318\ConEmu\conemu-msys-32.exe" --log C:\Users\acer\Downloads\ConEmuPack.180318 C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\bash.exe --login -i

^[]9;11;"TIOCSWINSZ(170,39) succeeded"^G
^[[32macer@acer-PC ^[[33m

I didn't find what the 'ESC [ ? 1034 h' code means?

Maybe I shoud describe my problem more simply and clearly:

  1. My os is windows 7 64bit;
  2. I use mingw-get-setup.exe to install MinGW and msys, use all default setting to instatll it and don't change anything;
  3. Download ConEmuPack.180318.7z portable, extract it, run ConEmu64.exe, and new a tab use default {Bash::MinGW bash} task, but the cursor is not show;
  4. Download ConEmuPack.161206.7z portable, do the same thing, and the cursor is here.

I just down all the sofewares, install and run them, and didn't change anything of them, so I don't think it's the problem about my bash profile. I'm confused with your advice.

So, what can I do with this problem?

The file please.

Comparison with 161206 is not fair, there were no connector, and ConEmu didn't received any ANSI.

You may try to change TERM to xterm via connector arguments

Did you mean the log file? Before I add -t xterm connector arguments, it is:
tim 20180408111943

After I add -t xterm, it is:
tim 20180408112118

The cursor is still not show.

  Unlike actual cygwin and Msys 2.0 builds, the MinGW (Msys 1.0) starts processes
  detached from conhost, so ConEmu server does not see them (bash.exe).

  TODO: Retrieve process lists from connector.
