I would love to say to I don't have this problem using my  
distribution, but my karma is to maintain software I don't really use  
on a daily basis.

However, what I can share is this: I use Aquamacs based on GNU Emacs  
22.1 in a pattern similar to Gerald's (AUCTeX, ESS, French and  
English) and I have never seen this weird behavior.

As I always reply to this: glad it can be useful to a wider audience  
than my students.
