I believe it is called from clear_frame, which is called by
redraw_frame, which in turn is called by redraw_garbaged_frames.

The call to ns_enable_screen_updates is too late, I think: you must
enable screen updates before redisplay_internal calls update_frame,
because that's where we actually draw stuff on the screen.
