[OS X Emacs] Problem with Shift-TAB

I am using Aquamacs ("GNU Emacs (i386-apple-darwin9.8.0, NS
apple-appkit-949.54) of 2010-08-18 on braeburn.aquamacs.org - Aquamacs
Distribution 2.1") and I have a problem with the Shift-TAB binding.
When I am entering a filename in the minibuffer I use TAB for
completion. However, when I just had typed a capital letter in the
filename my finger is still on the SHIFT key, and therefore I type
Shif-TAB instead of TAB. Now for some reason Shift-TAB is mapped to
C-y which I find quite illogical. I would like Shift-TAB to behave like
TAB in the minibuffer, but I can't find out how. I have tried to do
someting with input-decode-map, local-function-key-map or
key-translation-map but I can't find the proper invocation for getting
rid of the Shift-TAB mapping.
