I start Macvim without any .vimrc (by the simple method of deleting the .vimrc file)

The system beep works (testing by hitting the escape key a few times)

I run

 :set visualbell 

and smack escape a few more times, but there is NO error noise and also no screen flashing.

 :set t_vb? 

gives t_vb=^[|f

The same actions in my terminal vim produce a striking flash.

What is going wrong with my MacVim (8.2.2164)?
