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


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:
