successfully hides the cursor.
should unhide it, but it doesn't.
Any idea what the problem might be?

In the ncurses terminal database,
cvvis is used as documented in the terminfo manual page:
cursor_visible cvvis vs make cursor very visible
and if there is no difference between normal and very visible, the
cvvis capability is usually omitted. The feature is used in
curs_setroutine sets the cursor state to invisible, normal, or very visible for visibility equal to
2respectively. If the terminal supports the visibility re-quested, the previous cursor state is returned; otherwise,
terminfo(5) manual page also says
If the cursor needs to be made more visible than normal when it is not on the bottom line (to make, for example, a non-blinking underline into an easier to find block or blinking underline) give this sequence as
cvvis. If there is a way to make the cursor completely invisible, give that as
civis. The capability
cnormshould be given which undoes the effects of both of these modes.
Some terminal descriptions may (incorrectly) equate
cnorm, since some emacs configurations assume that
cvvis is always set.
