Hi Peter,
regarding this bug: please try rebuilding with an updated CVS. I have just checked in a few changes that may fix this (by not loading org.gnu.Emacs.plist any longer).

The previous setting of the Option key is not preserved. I can't type [, ], {, }, |, or \!

In the NS port, ns-option-modifier is `meta' by default, so this is logical.
I presume you had a customization.

Adrian, should we change this to match the Carbon Emacs default?
Your ns-compatibility-mode (forgot exact name) could change that, of course, but without it, we don't have too many Mac like keys bound. Traditional Emacs users tend to want a Meta key, while most users of non-English keyboard layouts will need Option very regularly to do tasks often done in Emacs {like C/Java/... programming}.
