I think it shouldn't do that. I have an older emacsclient in /usr/local/bin/ that doesn't have this behaviour, so i guess it is a bug. See if you can find an older one. On the other hand, with just Cmd-TAB you are back.
Why don't you just edit the file in the graphical aquamacs. Isn't that more comfortable?
