[OS X Emacs] aquamacs frame size and position problem

Just to make sure I had all the defaults, I actually went ahead and  
reinstalled aquamacs 1.3rc3 and then also tried with 1.2. Before each  
install I also deleted all my preference files, including .emacs and ~/ 
Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/ and ~/Library/Application Support/ 
Aquamacs Emacs

Same problem as before: I load any file, adjust the frame to get a  
wider, make a small change in the file, then save it, close it. Then  
reload it (using Apple-O or Recent) and the frame is back to the  
smaller default size...

I repeated the procedure with aquamacs's 1.2 release. Same problem.

I'm running Leopard 10.5.2 on a macbook air. Anyone got this working
