Try M-Q instead of M-q in Aquamacs. The semantics change when you
switch to soft-wrapping, because usually one doesn't want to hard-wrap
when soft-wrapping is on.
If I misunderstood you, try writing to the Emacs-on-OSX mailing list,
where we support Aquamacs (and Emacs) users. (I don't think it's an
org-mode problem, unless M-q is supposed to be remapped there. Find
out with C-h k M-q (in Emacs 23 and Aquamacs).
