There are more inconsistencies in Aquamacs with buffers and frames.
I have o-b-o-f set OFF.
I started Aquamacs, noted there was no Frames item on the Windows menu.
open -a "/Applications/Aquamacs Emacs.app" foo
Closed the window with cmd-W (simulating my common mistake).
Opened a new window with cmd-N. Showed a scratch buffer.
Killed that buffer with c-x-k. foo reappeared.
Now the windows menu showed a Frames item. clicking it brought up
a submenu with foo on it twice.
open -a "/Applications/Aquamacs Emacs.app" bar
showed bar in the window, and the Window :: Frames submenu showed both
foo and bar, but in fact there was only one frame.
Choosing an item from the Frames submenu opened a new frame.
open -a "/Applications/Aquamacs Emacs.app" baz
opened baz in one of the frames.
I was able to end up with a long list of files on the Frames submenu,
many more than I had frames. What should the Frames submenu
show if a window is split and holds more than one file?
