[OS X Emacs] clicking the menubar requires two clicks in 3.5

I don't know what MacOS API is triggering this, but it has something to
do with the Accessibility controls.  You can suppress/trigger the
two-clicks-required menu behavior by toggling the checkbox next to
Aquamacs.app under "Allow the apps below to control your computer"
in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility.

My guess is that the first time you ran Aquamacs 3.5 there was a
dialog box from the OS that asked if you wanted to allow Aquamacs to
control your computer, and you said no.  (Because why would Aquamacs
need full control of the computer?)
