You are genius! 

How do you find this time...?

Do you really have an answer to the question why experienced Emacs users like Aquamacs...?

The problem is opening an HTML file from within a process that is running from within Aquamacs.  So, Aquamacs is running, I open a shell process with M-x shell, and then try to open a file.  Another way to replicate is to start an ESS process (M-x R), and then ask for an HTML help file ( ?mean ) .

    I did try that earlier too — no replication, instant response.
    The case of “?mean” also works perfectly.

    That has to do with an Emacs build problem — I’ll let them fix it.  They probably already have in a newer version.
    Either way, we offer pre-made nightly builds on the website.

    OK, thanks.
    I’m assuming you’re not getting this delay when opening a file from Finder, dragging/dropping onto the Aquamacs icon in the Dock, or when typing “open x.txt” from a shell in Terminal, correct?
    Again, I’d ask that you try to replicate with an Aquamacs started without configuration (Help->Diagnose), although I suspect this might just open the file in the Aquamacs that is already running with configuration.  In that case one would have to manually start it with “-q” from the command line or remove all config files.
