[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs: bitten by "Application Support" file (here: calc-preferences)

Dear David,

in Resources/lisp/calc.el, line 234 says:

(locate-user-emacs-file "calc.el" ".calc.el")

and it will yield "calc.el" in directory
"~/Library/Application Support/Aquamacs Emacs/"
because this - Aquamacs Default - is the value of

Changing "calc.el" in line 234 to "calc_pref.el", or similar, should do the trick.

Warm regards,
