I would like to be able to change just the behavior in the second
sentence above. It leads to a state where Aquamacs is running and has
many buffers open, some possibly modified, but no open windows. I
never want to be in this state: if there are open buffers there should
be at least one frame visible. Double clicking a file whose editor is
Aquamacs, when Aquamacs is in the no-window state, opens TWO frames,
one with the new file and the other with some other file that has a
buffer. If I double click a file that already has a buffer, I end up
with two frames showing the same file, with different fonts.
Perhaps I should try rebinding Command-W to kill-buffer.
(By the way, your last sentence has a typo, C-h k in the last sentence
above should be C-x k.)
Finding out what keys are bound to, using C-h k, leads to another
issue. The popup shows what the key is bound to, but not WHY. That
is, the binding could be the result of the aquamacs-key-map, or of one
of many modes. Would it be possible to display what mode bound the key?
