In 2.0 final, you can write a method on FRED-BLINK-POSITION that
always returns NIL. In 2.0b1 this is a bit harder (the only practical
solution I can think of is to turn off blinking on all Fred buffers).
Here's how in 2.0 final. If you really want to know, I'll tell you
how in 2.0b1:
(defclass unblinking-fred-dialog-item (fred-dialog-item)
(defmethod fred-blink-position ((self unblinking-fred-dialog-item))
