Thanks, David. I can work around it for now
I had switched away from .emacs after it got rewritten saying I shouldn’t use it for Aquamacs, and that’s how I tripped over it. Sounds like the easiest thing to do is sort it out when the emacs-devel discussion converges.

I don’t know if I like this approach because I’m not sure how people are going to deal with it that use the UI. It’s going to get solved somehow.
