Hi --

Running Aquamacs Preview 2, but this has been going on a long time.

(1) Command-. doesn't work to cancel dialog boxes. At least it doesn't  
work with the save dialog. Sometimes I accidently try to save a buffer  
and want to keep my hands on the keyboard to cancel out of it. But no  
go. It requires me to click.

(2) Unsaved changes dialog is tricksy. When I am quitting a bunch of  
applications, including Aquamacs, sometimes it doesn't quit. The  
reason is unsaved changes. But the dialog box doesn't seem to reliably  
appear on top of the application. Sometimes i have to switch to  
another app and then back. Sometimes, I don't know.... it shows up  
eventually. Also, there don't appear to be keyboard interfaces (such  
as defaults) to that either.

Am I configuring something wrong? Is this a known issue with a  
tracking number?
