[OS X Emacs] Problem with Options:Appearance:Adopt Face and...

I found a minor quirk with Aquamacs 1.7 when trying to set a larger  
default font size.

(1) Pressing A++ will increase the current font size (zoom: 120%),  
which I find extremely useful. My intention was to always have that  
font size as default for all buffer in all modes, so I tried  
"Options:Appearance:Adopt Face...". I had previously hidden the  
toolbar (using the button at the top-right corner of the Aquamacs  
window), and used the green maximize button. When using the "Adopt  
Face..." option, Aquamacs resized the window so that the bottom was no  
longer visible. My guess is that the size of the (hidden) toolbar was  
added. Saving Options and then restarting Aquamacs yields a smaller  
frame than desired and the same font size.

(2) This worked for me: I used Cmd-Shift-T ("Options:Appearance:Font  
for..."), adjusted the font size and did "Options:Save Options". I  
realize that this is different from "Adopt Face..." which has a more  
general scope.
