I just compiled emacs enabling carbon support  (GNU Emacs
(x86_64-apple-darwin10.1.1, NS apple-appkit-1038.11) of 2009-12-05) and
while everything seemed to work fine, the visual-bell feature is not working
well. I migrated all my elisp scripts from my legacy ubuntu machine and all
of them are loading fine :), however, the visual-bell is rendering a
~100x100 square on the center of the emacs window, instead of rendering the
usual belts on the bottom and top of the emacs window.  For now, I just
disabled this feature, but I'd like to know if anyone knows why this happens
and how I could possibly fix it.

I can reproduce the behavior you're describing, as

  - start emacs with "Emacs -Q"
  - eval "(setq visible-bell t)"
  - do something that rings the bell

GNU Emacs (powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0, NS apple-appkit-824.48)
(on Mac OS X 10.4.11) rings the bell as a square in the middle of
Emacs' frame.

GNU Emacs 22.3.1 (powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
rings the bell by flashing the mode line, and the first line of the

GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i586-suse-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.18.1)
uses the same visual bell as GNU Emacs 22.3.1 on Mac OS X 10.4.11
(flashing the mode line, and top buffer line)

The behavior of Emacs 23.1 on Mac OS X seems inconsistent with Emacs
23.1.1 on a Linux distribution, and with older (22.3) versions of
Emacs on Mac OS X.

You may want to report this with M-x report-emacs-bug.
