I'm using emacs 24.1 from on mac os 10.7. It works well but for some reason I'm unable to minimize emacs window. When I press the yellow button in the upper left corner window goes to the dock but then immediately restores on the same place.

Aquamacs isn't an alternative for you? – Daniel Beck Jun 14 '12 at 6:14
Cannot reproduce the issue on my system. – Daniel Beck Jun 14 '12 at 6:19
I have exactly the same problem for Aquamacs. It looks like this. – Evgeny Jun 19 '12 at 1:45
Sounds a lot like an issue affecting multiple or even all applications. What about other programs? Is it really limited to just Emacs and Aquamacs? – Daniel Beck Jun 19 '12 at 6:19
I started using Mac Os only three months ago. And so far this issue affects only Emacs and Aquamacs. I actually already tested it on another Mac under 10.8 developer preview and the same problem reproduced on it as well. – Evgeny Jun 19 '12 at 7:28

In my case this behaviour was caused by mouse-avoidance-mode line in my .emacs file:

(mouse-avoidance-mode (quote banish) nil (avoid))

I changed it to:

(mouse-avoidance-mode 'exile)

and now everything works fine.
