That was fast, thanks a lot!

I just built Aquamacs and it works partially.

If I open a fresh emacs (no customizations etc) and type a sentence then A-shift-left will not mark that sentence - it just jumps to the beginning. If I manually set the mark (e.g,.by one press of shift-left) then A-shift-left marks that sentence.
