[OS X Emacs] forward-word binding

I just installed Aquamacs 1.4 and one keystroke that I used all the
time has been changed!
Specifically, when I used to type control-left/right the cursor would
move one word (ignoring parentheses) in either direction. I suspect,
but don't know for sure, that this is the 'forward-word function.
Now, both control-left/right and [Apple]-left/right move me to the
beginning/end of the current line that I'm on. I'd like to bring back
the old behavior to the control commands.
How can I do this? I tried editing the osxkeys.el file in /
with the lines
(define-key map '[(control left)] 'backward-word)
(define-key map '[(control right)] 'forward-word)
but I don't really know what I'm doing here.
