[OS X Emacs] mode line and minibuffer weirdness

The following is happening episodically, i.e., sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't, and I haven't isolated the cause. :-(
(1) The buffer name is not present in the mode line.
(2) The minibuffer is in what appears to be Times-Roman font.
I can fix things by restarting aquamacs.  It's not an elegant solution, but it sorta works.

But seriously, before I start binary-searching my customizing elisp files for the likely culprit, if anybody has an idea what might cause this to happen, I'd appreciate hearing from you.  (I've been using emacs for around 30 years, with the customization bloat that you'd expect after this much usage.  So hunting this puppy down without any additional info wouldn't exactly be something I'd put into my bucket list.)
