With emacs (or Aquamacs) in the command line, you quit the process, which triggers processing of the commit message.

If you run Aquamacs with the GUI, the command returns immediately.  I think that we could probably come up with a flag for the aquamacs command that waits until the buffer is closed, but maybe you can simply use emacsclient, as Peter suggested.
