Hi David,

thanks for the great work!

> Aquamacs Emacs 1.3rc2 (Release Candidate 2) is now available

A general problem I have with aquamacs: how do I catch an application  
quit? I have the following keybindings jumping into a custom function,  
and for C-xC-c it works nicely, but Quitting through Mac OS X means  
(i.e. selecting quit in the application menu) the function is never  
entered. Any suggestions on how to achieve that?

Thanks for fixing that, it now seems to work for me as well.

What does that mean? It does not work for me...
If I touch "küpper.txt" in Terminal.app and open the file in Aquamacs  
1.3rc2, it is called "ku"pper.txt", the same holds in dired-mode. If I  
copy the filename from dired and paste it in Mail.app, I get  
"küpper.txt" (looks correct to me)...

However, I would expect to get a correct display inside Emacs;-O

Not sure how it looks better in my (right hand side) Leopard Dock -- I  
don't actually like the bright head...
