[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs 1.6: find-file force frame selection?

I observed the following behaviour in the current Aquamacs release  
(1.6): on my large screen I like to have two or more frames next to  
each other. Each of them usually has a number of tabs. Consider two  
frames ("left" and "right"). If I active frame "left" and do a find- 
file, I expect the resulting buffer to be displayed in frame "left",  
vice versa for a find-file in frame "right". However, if the file I  
select happens to have an associated tab in the other frame, Aquamacs  
will activate the "wrong" frame and bring the corresponding tab to the  
front. This is not necessarily a bug but different from what I expect  
- I would prefer Aquamacs to always use the frame where I execute the  
find-file for displaying the associated buffer (and tab).
