Thank you, it is a known issue that has its origins deep in GNU Emacs (and is reproducable there).  It has been reported to the Emacs team:

Yes, this works as intended.  Try the customization option (Options menu) that lists all the customization variables that are changed in Aquamacs as opposed to GNU Emacs.
