[OS X Emacs] Incremental search in Aquamacs 1.4

Hi David,
Yes - and note that my complaint included the behavior described by  
Jochen. I may not have made that clear. FWIW, I start aquamacs using a  
bash function as follows:

function aquamacs()
     open -a /Applications/Aquamacs/Aquamacs\ Emacs.app

Note that I store my app in a folder: /Applications/Aquamacs. Being a  
pack rat, I cache the old versions as I go along by renaming them with  
the version number as a suffix.

I doubt that that alone could make the bug not reproduce in your  
sessions. I suspect it's probably more like some obscure interaction  
in your startup files, which in turn I suspect are fairly ornate.
