I tried

        \thm at notefont{\bfseries\upshape}%

in the preamble but then I got

    ! Undefined control sequence.
    l.108     ^^I\thm

So, I commented out the "added line" in amsthm.sty and now it works as 
advertised. Of course, that will leave "editors" of the book (if any) 
with the very puzzle I had. But might there be a more immediate, hidden 
cost? (Un train peut en cacher un autre, as they used to post in train 

Very grateful regards
