No, as I note, that was the first thing I did, and it does not solve  
the problems I pointed out.  There are two problems: (1) If you have  
split your source window into two panes and each pane is looking at a  
different part of your source document, an inverse search (i.e., Shift- 
Cmd-<LeftClick> in the Skim preview) moves the cursor in *both*  
Aquamacs panes to the corresponding point in the source document  
instead of only the most recently active pane.  An inverse search does  
not make Aquamacs the active application.
