Missing serial console cursor during text mode install

Using 2008-11-05 rawhide install images, I pxe booted an install with:
lang=en_US.UTF-8 keymap=uk vnc console=ttyS0,115200n81 method=...
The first curses screen I hit was "Configure TCP/IP" and it was lacking any focus indication - i.e. nothing was highlighted on the screen.
Continuing on, after the VNC server was started and the serial console was dropped to a shell, there was no cursor.
Forcing the terminal to reset with gnome-terminals Terminal->Reset restored the cursor.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
