Looking in the docs for toggle-input-method, I discovered a variable named default-input-method.  I set that to nil (via Customizations).  Restarting Aquamacs, I found that this kept Aquamacs from being so "helpful".  However, I then noticed that some other things didn't work right, e.g., tab completion in the minibuffer wound up minimizing the current window.  So I went back to the customizations.el file and commented out the line
 '(default-input-method nil)
within custom-set-variables, and restarted.  

Oddly enough, although the current default-input-method is still latin-1-prefix, Aquamacs is no longer being "helpful" WRT the special chars.  I have no explanation for this.
