[OS X Emacs] ESC-Backspace doesn't put word in kill ring -- odd behavior? (Aquamacs 3.3 on OS 10.11.6)

This works for me.
Perhaps you can try with an Aquamacs without customizations (Help -> Diagnose menu) and then find out what in your configuration causes this to fail.
The function normally bound to M-Delete is essentially the same as other kill functions (kill-word, kill-region), so just M-Delete not working would be strange in itself.

Now, however, I get a message saying the kill ring is empty, so the only way to recover the text is through an undo.  Is there a configuration setting change that could explain this, or might something be going wrong?
