I generally recommend against that, because it slows down Aquamacs  
(and any Emacs).  Many buffers are created for internal functions, and  
every time this happens, it will do all the things needed for `text- 
mode', which can be a lot (e.g., auto fill mode, spell checking,  
etc.).  Earlier Aquamacs versions had this set like you do, but I've  
learned from experience :)

Instead, in recent Aquamacs versions, just set `initial-major-mode'.   
This will apply to buffers created with Command-N or Command-T.
