The latest Emacs 23 Mac port contains some backported patches for
redisplay bugs that was found in the trunk (revno 106534,
106517(Bug#10119), 106357, 106345(Bug#9496), 106279(Bug#9947), 106223,
and 106220).  They can be used as candidates.  Among them, I think at
least revno 106534 and 106357 should be backported to the emacs-23
branch because otherwise users may occasionally see very strange
results:

This strange display could not be observed with Emacs 23.3 so easily
except the very rare cases, because this bug has emerged by a fix for
another bug:
