If you're using Aquamacs Emacs, which tries to do things "like a Mac
OS X app", it remembers it in ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/
I'm not too clear on what's wrong with "~/.emacs", but Aquamacs also
suggests that you use ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/
Preferences.el instead, although it is gracious enough to load both.
