Thanks Jamie! You led me to the solution. I looked at the control panel
and the box WAS checked. So I unchecked it, quit and restarted Aquamacs,
still didn't work. I reopened the control panel, checked the box, quit
and restarted Aquamacs, and menus worked.
(Running very hard just to stay in the same place.)
