this problem has been solved: for some reason, Aquamacs-Styles mode  
was disabled. When trying a Options:Save Options, Aquamacs actually  
warned that Aquamacs-Styles mode was off and not all settings would be  
saved - it obviously pays to read warnings... We have used  
Options:Customize Emacs to switch this mode on: saving font  
preferences and frame positions now works beautifully in Aquamacs
