That's unfortunate, and I'll look into it.
Does turning off autofaces mode actually help?

If it does, you should be able to turn it off by adding

(aquamacs-autoface-mode 0)

to your ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/Preferences.el file.

auto-faces defines some default faces specific to major modes, for instance in order to provide monospaced fonts for programming modes.
It uses an Emacs mechanism (`face-remapping-alist') to replace the default faces in a buffer with the default face assigned for the mode.

The mode-specific default faces are always named after the major mode.  For instance, org-mode will have a face called `org-mode-default'.

I'd like to stress that this only affects the default face.  Other faces defined by the major mode (e.g., syntax highlighting = "font-locking") should not be affected.

It works for me, by the way.  "DONE" is green.
