Apparently I've configured some kind of utility that makes my whole screen flash white whenever my Terminal.app gives a 'bell'. This is not the same as the option "visual bell" on the preference pane of Terminal. Does anyone know how I can deactivate this behavior? It's pretty annoying.

You probably have the “flash the screen on alerts” hearing assistance feature turned on.

Try searching for “flash screen” in System Preferences (it should be in the Universal Access preference pane, probably under Hearing).

Edit your ~/.inputrc and set readline variable bell-style to none:

set bell-style none
