Richard et al,
the current development builds have had the `set-region-to-isearch-
match' customization variable for a while.
I have now also modified the bindings such that C-s and C-r will, in
the default setting, not cause the region to be set. Command-f/g/G
will set the region as is customary on the Mac. Please try out the
nightly builds on http://aquamacs.org/nightlies.shtml to see if this
matches your expectations; the Intel build already contains the
changes, the PPC build will be up to date by tomorrow.
