Thank you, Nathaniel. That got me looking. Using C-h v kill-ring, I
viewed its contents. A bit hard to read, but from what it looks like
there is some sort of weird interlacing of the Mac OS clipboard and
regular kill-ring contents. BUT I know for a fact stuff is NOT
getting killed into the clipboard, since I can look at the clipboard
contents (or paste it elsewhere) and it's the last thing Cut or
Copied, not the thing that was killed in Aquamacs.
I am very confused.
