Hi All -- Congratulations and thanks to David for all the improvements in 
Aquamacs 2.0.  I have found *very pleasantly* that I can run Aquamacs 
without "show buffers in new frames" checked, relying on tabs heavily. 
But, that when a new file is opened from the finder, a new frame is 
opened. This behavior is quite nice and very functional.

I am also using OS X Spaces.  Aquamacs seems to work well with this in the 
sense that new files opened from the finder open in a new frame the 
current Space.  This is excellent.

One oddity is that when a frame in the current Space is closed, and there 
are no other aquamacs frames opened in the current Space, aquamacs 
switches to a different frame.  Most applications (e.g., Firefox, 
Terminal) will switch to a different window only if one is available in 
the current Space; otherwise will revert to a state of not having a 
current window be the focus.  Is there a way to tweak Aquamacs so that 
when a frame is closed, it does not switch to another frame if the only 
other frames available are in other Spaces?
