[OS X Emacs] Incremental search in Aquamacs 1.4

I recently started using 1.4 on my repaired iMac (internal drive
failed before the box was a year old!) - I am annoyed by a changed
behavior and I'd like to know:
(a) Do others share my annoyance?
(b) How do I turn the behavior back to the "old" way.
The behavior in question is that when incremental search matches a
string and you hit return to mark the place found, Aquamacs now also
_selects_ that text. Moreover, when you ^s^s to repeat the search, it
doesn't simply select the new match - it selects everything from the
first match to the second match inclusive.
I find it hard to believe that anyone would want this as the default.
Is there something wrong with my installation, or was this a conscious
Help - I hate the way this works now.
