I just tested this. Normal video, visual bell not enabled (through the
xterm menu).

I called vi and pressed cursor up. The screen flashed.

Then I enabled reverse video and again called vi. Pressed cursor up and
the screen went back to normal video (also in xterm's menu). Black writing
on white background.

Really strange. Fortunately I don't use vi :-) The only command I know is
<ESC>:q! just I case some app calls vi.
