This sounds familiar. I had the same problem and it was due to
desktop.el. There is a way to tell desktop.el not to restore the
*scratch* buffer, but this stopped working in Aquamacs somewhere
between 1.0 and 1.4, I forget exactly. So it used to try to restore
the *scratch* but since there was already one, it gave a warning when
doing it. At any rate, one ended up with two scratch buffers. Since
desktop.el never really worked well with Aquamcs, I stopped using
it. Instead I use the menu "File->Open Recent" a lot :) It's not as
convenient as desktop.el, but I can live with it, especially since
the only time I close Aquamacs is when I restart the computer.
