Your 10.6 is likely to be coincidental.  Perhaps you upgraded Aquamacs at the time.

The :name syntax probably requires the `cl' package, and I believe that later versions of Aquamacs no longer load that package.  This is what may have provoked the error message.  Just a guess based on what I've seen here about this issue.

But I'm glad you've got the problem sorted.
