I have set the cursor shape to be - I-beam in my terminal preference. When I execute :term command in vim, the cursor type is changed to block type. This change is retained even after I exit the :term window. The change to the cursor type can also be seen in the shell prompt even after I exit vim. :P How do I make :term window to have I-beam as the cursor type?

Vim version details:

    I'm not sure it'll help, but this question is related if you're using bash.
