Since he's a Mac OS X user (like me) it's quite likely that he is
running someone else's build.  Mac users are not accustomed to
compiling from source, the Mac OS not having the tools available to
the general public prior to OS X.  His post states he's using the
Carbon version, which is likely compiled using Andrew Choi's patches
to the Emacs source.  There are two commonly available Carbon builds
for OS X (one for 10.1.* and one for 10.2.*), both of which have known
problems that seem to be related to adapting Emacs to the Mac menu bar

As I've mentioned previously, I'm running 10.1.5 (a fit of resistance
to Apple's full-list-price "upgrade" policy) and the
21.1 build, and am not able to duplicate the OP's experience.  Perhaps
trying a different build would be in order?
