[OS X Emacs] wrong glyphs in Show-Newlines mode

in Aquamacs 2.0preview2, when enabling the menu entry  
Options:View:Show Newlines the message "Global-Show-Newlines mode  
enabled" appears and all newlines are marked with a grey rectangle. I  
observed this with several fonts.

This might be related to a posting on the help-gnu-emacs list of  
August 12:

Unfortunately, Xah Lee's recipe does not work for me. Many thanks for  
any help with this.
