For the record, I don't believe that this is an Aquamacs bug per se.
The Aquamacs aspect of the problem is that Aquamacs is frame-happy, and
tends to pop up a lot more frames than a vanilla emacs.  That means that
behaviors occur that you wouldn't see with a vanilla emacs.  I'm not
suggesting that Aquamacs is doing anything wrong by putting the Calendar
buffer in another frame, so by handling that case, I'm not fixing an
Aquamacs bug.  I'm just guarding against a condition that we don't see
in vanilla emacs.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to replicate this on a vanilla emacs.
When I try to force *Calendar* into a different frame while inside a
call to org-schedule, I cannot.  The closest I can do is to set
calendar-setup to 'two-frame, which does pop up a frame and leave my
cursor trapped in it, but it actually behaves even /worse/ than
Aquamacs, because I can't assign a date at all.  On Aquamacs I get a
date, but my cursor is left in the wrong window, making me (ugh) use the
mouse to get back where I was.

Hope that helps,
