[OS X Emacs] Switching to Aquamacs: Some Odd Issues with Faces

Hi everybody,

I've just switched from Emacs.app (an older version based on Emacs 22)
to Aquamacs 2.0, so I'm not sure if these issues are related to the new
Aquamacs release, Aquamacs in general, or just my general Aquamacs

I've set up a default face using M-x customize that is currently in 
"~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/customizations.el" and looks like

  ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(default ((t (:inherit nil :stipple nil :background "Midnight Blue" :foreground "White" :inverse-video nil :box nil :strike-through nil :overline nil :underline nil :slant normal :weight normal :height 120 :width normal :foundry "apple" :family "Monaco")))))

It doesn't seem to be properly loaded.  I'm not sure why.  It seems that
my other customizations are loaded, though.  So I've been opening the
file each time and evaluating the code manually.  Sort of a pain.

But it gets even stranger: new frames do not use all of the default
face.  The "Help" frame is particularly prone to this, and uses a nice
White foreground on a lovely White background.  I'm wondering if I'm
doing something wrong.

I've commented all of the customization stuff out of ~/.emacs.el and
it's all present in the Preferences file.  I've been left scratching my
head.  Help?
