I haven't seen this exact problem, but I have a few problems with emacs window 
being slightly the wrong size. For example I have a space between the fringe 
and the edge of the window in terms of where the scroll bar is placed.  It gets 
corrupted pixels (as seen below) and never redisplays.  I haven't worried about 
it because it's only cosmetic, but I mention it now because it might be 
related. If NSEmacs is calculating the wrong size for the window, courier might 
get shoved into the mode line.  This is just a wild guess.

You'll make several people very happy.  Would it help if there were an 
incentive set up at http://www.freedomsponsors.com/ for example?
